Excerpt from book:
conceive, and it may seem true, that there is in man a CHAP, natural possibility to destroy the world in one genera- XII tion, that is, by a general conspire to know no woman themselves, and disable all others also: yet will this never be effected. And therefore Cain after he had killed Abel, were there no other woman living, could not have also destroyed Eve: which although he had a natural power to effect, yet the execution thereof, the providence of God would have resisted : for that would have imposed another creation upon him, and to have animated a second Rib of Adam. CHAPTER XIII Of Frogs, Toads, and Toad-stone. CONCERNING the venomous Urine of Toads, of the stone in the Toads head, and of the generation of Frogs, conceptions are entertained which require consideration. And first, that a Toad pisseth, and this way diffuseth its venome, is generally received, not only with us, but also in other parts; for so hath Scaliger observed in his Comment, Aver sum urinam reddere ob oculos persecutoris perniciosam ruri- colls persuasum est; and Ufathiolus hath also a passage, that a Toad communicates its venome, not only by Urine, but by the humidity and slaver of its mouth; which notwithstanding strictly understood, may admit of examination : for some doubt may be made whether a Toad properly pisseth, that is distinctly and separately voideth the serous excretion: for though not only birds, but oviparous quadrupeds and Serpents have CHAP, kidneys and ureters, and some Fishesalso bladders: XIII yet for the moist and dry excretion they seem at last to have but one vent and common place of exclusion : and with the same propriety of language, we may ascribe that action unto Crows and Kites. And this not onely in Frogs and Toads, but may be enquired in Tortoyses : that is, wh...
