Context


«So, then, religion must change. Paradise is something infantile, with its blessed always in a state of contemplation, always chanting hymns, and looking from on high at the tortures of the damned. When one reflects that Christianity had for its basis an apple!»
The curé was annoyed. «Deny revelation; that would be simpler.»
«How do you make out that God spoke?» said Bouvard.
«Prove that he did not speak!» said M. Jeufroy.
