Febrary 16, 2007: Gibbon on the Afterlife - 0 Comments

"Since therefore the most sublime efforts of philosophy can extend no further than feebly to point out the desire, the hope, or, at most, the probability, of a future state, there is nothing, except a divine revelation, that can ascertain the existence, and describe the condition, of the invisible country which is destined to receive the souls of men after their separation from the body."
- Gibbon, Decline & Fall Vol. I, 1776.
