One man’s “magic” is another man’s engineering. “Supernatural” is a null word.

Stranger in a Strange Land - Robert A. Heinlein

Never attempt to teach a pig to sing; it wastes your time and annoys the pig. 

 

Robert A. Heinlein

 

Decades before the waterbed was patented and popularized in America, science fiction writer Robert A. Heinlein (born July 7, 1907) described them in detail in his books.

quote 2017-05-29 20:10
The most preposterous notion that Homo sapiens has ever dreamed up is that the Lord God of Creation, Shaper and Ruler of all the Universes, wants the saccharine adoration of His creatures, can be swayed by their prayers, and becomes petulant if He does not receive this flattery.

Yet this absurd fantasy, without a shred of evidence to bolster it, pays all the expenses of the oldest, largest, and least productive industry in all history.

The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress - Robert A. Heinlein

This story is a sci-fi epic retelling of the American Revolution, only this time the people of the moon are rebelling against Earth and the Lunar Authority led by a sentient computer and a ragtime group of ice miner and farmers.

Heinlein gives the reader some interesting ideological viewpoints about government, people's rights vs. government, marriage and women's rights and empowerment.

This is classic Heinlein at his best and although the story may be showing it's age a little, it is still a very fun read.
