The Church Of The Cosmic Cheese

The true story of a sixteenth century Italian miller whose independent and inquiring mind led him to develop his own bizarre cosmology, in his own words:

"All was chaos, that is earth, air, water and fire were mixed together, and out of that bulk a mass formed - just as cheese is made out of milk - and worms appeared in it, and these were the angels.

And the greatest of the worms was God."
