Não sei por que cosmólogos e cientistas em geral insistem em entender a origem do universo, o big bang, supernovas e gigantes vermelhas, se Mark Twain explicou tudo tão perfeitamente, a tanto tempo atrás.
“We had the Sky, up there, all speckled with stars, and we used to lay on our backs and look up at them, and discuss whether they was made, or only just happened –Jim he allowed they was made, but I allowed they happened; I judged it would have took too long to make so many. Jim said the moon could a laid them; well, that looked kind of reasonable, so I didn’t say nothing against it, because I’ve seen a frog lay most as many, so of course it could be done. We used to watch the stars that fell, too, and see them streak down. Jim allowed they’d got spoiled and was hove out of the nest.” (Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, capítulo XIX)
