As I said in my Almagest, which was well accepted for almost fifteen hundred years, the motions of the planets can be explained by careful observations and complex mathematical formulas based on the principle that the earth is at the center of the universe. But then so-called "scientists" came along and now I just don't get any respect. But thank Zeus, things are starting to change.

So Zeus be with the Kansas and Pennsylvania school boards! I certainly am.
