The physicist Leó Szilárd once announced to his friend Hans Bethe that he was thinking of keeping a diary:
- "I don't intend to publish. I am merely going to record the facts for the information of God".
- Don't you think God knows the facts?", Bethe asked.
-Yes", said Szilard. "He knows the facts, but He does not know this version of the facts".
