Happy birthday, Arthur Eddington # quaker

Happy birthday, Arthur Eddington (Dec. 28, 1882 – Nov. 22, 1944)! #Quaker. #Pacifist. Conscientious objector during World War I. Astronomer. Astrophysicist. Early interpreter and popularizer of the theory of relativity. Quotable quote: “I think it may be said that Quakerism in dispensing with creeds holds out a hand to the scientist. The spirit of seeking which animates us refuses to regard any kind of creed as its goal. … If our so-called facts are changing shadows, they are shadows cast by the light of constant truth.” Born in Kendal, United Kingdom. Died in Cambridge, U.K. His cremated remains were buried in the grave of his mother in the Ascension Parish Burial Ground, Cambridge.
