Some of us will revolt against the insistence of the faithful

A huge ball of green fire fell in a gale of Oct. 14, 1877, as described in Nature, Oct. 25, 1877, London Times, Oct. 15, 1877, Nature, 17-10. Fort writes, “There are so many instances that some of us will revolt against the insistence of the faithful that it is only coincidence, and accept that there is connection of the kind called causal. If it is too difficult to think of stones and metallic masses swerved from their courses by storms, if they move at high velocity, we think of low velocity, or of things having no velocity at all, hovering a few miles above this earth, dislodged by storms, and falling luminously.”

–Charles Fort The Book of the Damned, p100 (The Complete Books of Charles Fort, Dover, c1974).
