A quote from A. E. Taylor

HT: Jim Slagle

"When anything is known, there is a triple presupposition: there must be that about which something is known, the person who knows this something, and the knowing of it. All three are constituent factors of the concrete world of our experience, and we have no right to treat the second and third factors as insignificant. It may be that if the astronomer who has 'swept the heavens with his telescope and found no God' had taken into account not only the heavens but himself and his search, he would have found the evidence which he pronounces to be missing."
