"The reawakened sciences have been reunited point by point with Epicurus philosophy, while they have escaped point by point Christianity." (Friedrich Nietzsche, Human, All Too Human 68)
True enough for Nietzsche's time. Unfortunately the most prominent positions in physics have been taken over by relativists and those who value thoughts over evidence.
Nate thank you for posting that. I decided to see if i could find the context of that passage, because I think there is a lot in Nietzsche that we ought to talk about here on the forum. However I am having difficulty. I see that I quoted it before, by my cites all point to the Epicurus wiki -- http://wiki.epicurism.info/Friedrich_Nietzsche/ .....
and I am not able to verify that from my copies of Nietzsche books or by googling.
Can anyone help verify that this is an authentic quote? It is a very good one, but if not actually from Nietzsche himself then we'll want to change the citation.
Google Books provides a number of translations. Each link provides preview access to Aphorism #68:

Thank you! Not sure what my problem was, but there it is!
