Darwin’s Best Quote on Religion and Science


Statue of Charles Darwin by Sir Joseph Boehm in the main hall of Natural History Museum London

“To conclude, therefore, let no man out of weak conceit of sobriety, or an ill-applied moderation, think or maintain, that a man can search too far or be too well-studied in the book of God’s word, or in the book of God’s works; divinity or philosophy; but rather let men endeavor an endless progress or proficiency in both.” — Charles Darwin

  1. Darwin’s above quote is like a religion to me, for my study, and I see its application in the materials that I read, almost on a daily basis.

    Men of religion or God think they do not need science, but, I often find even their theology very deficient, because of their conceit and arrogance arising from religious knowledge, in not studying science and the converse is true for those who are proficient in science, their lack of religious knowledge handicaps them in proper and balanced understanding of metaphysics, philosophy and religion.
