The Theologian and the Astronomer
A theologian and an astronomer were talking together one day. The
astronomer said that after reading widely in the field of religion,
he had concluded that all religion could be summed up in a single
"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," he said, with
a bit of smugness, knowing that his field is so much more complex.
After a brief pause, the theologian replied that after reading
widely in the area of astronomy he had concluded that all of it could
be summed up in a single phrase also.
"Oh, and what is that?" the astronaut inquired.
"Twinkle, twinkle, little star; how I wonder what you are!"
