|I think I've posted this one elsewhere, but kind Senex has requested more double-dactyls, so here goes. For those not up on epicurean physics, the 'atomic swerve' was a doctrine stating that all atoms from time to time change directions, and this was argued as a basis for the existence of free-will. Yes, I know, that doesn't exactly follow, but even the ancients had a hard time with it:
Atoms, inane, in a
Universe made up of
Pieces that stuck.
Thus said Lucretius so
"Stoics, they suck!"
