City of God

Kevin Baker in 2001 on
E. L. Doctorow’s City of God:

“…the nature of the cosmos
(Augustine’s City of God?)”

David Van Biema in Time Magazine
(May 2, 2005, p. 43)

on Augustine’s City of God:

“A key concept in Augustine’s great
The City of God is that the Christian church
is superior and essentially alien

to its earthly surroundings.”

This year’s April – Mathematics Awareness Month –
theme is “Mathematics and the Cosmos.”

For my own views on this theme as it applies
to education, see Wag the Dogma.

For some other views, see this year’s
Mathematics Awareness Month site.

One of the authors at that site,
which is mostly propaganda
for the religion of Scientism,
elsewhere quotes
an ignorant pedagogue:

“‘The discovery of non-Euclidean geometries
contradicted the “absolute truth” view
of the Platonists.'”

Sarah J. Greenwald,
   Associate Professor,
   Department of Mathematics
   Appalachian State University, Boone, NC

Damned nonsense.  See Math16.com.
