Quote of the Day by Charles Darwin

Whereas the scriptures like the Bible and the Quran are books of religion, correlating them with science is ‘metaphysics.’ A certain amount of humility is in order to comprehend the distinction between religion, science and metaphysics.

In the words of Sir Charles Darwin, as he quoted Francis Bacon from his book Advancement of learning in the later editions of Origin of Species to establish the proper relationship between religion and natural science:

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.

Review of the scriptures in light of science and appropriate commentaries by the initiated will lead a casual but honest reader to truth.
