Giordano Bruno: Quote for December 3, 2010

God is infinite, so His universe must be too. Thus is the excellence of God magnified and the greatness of His kingdom made manifest; He is glorified not in one, but in countless suns; not in a single earth, a single world, but in a thousand thousand, I say in an infinity of worlds.
The above belief was one reason Giordano Bruno was executed by the Catholic Inquisition in 1600.
