1100 – Galileo on God and Science

“I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with senses, reason and intellect has intended us to forego their use and by some other means to give us knowledge which we can attain by them. He would not require us to deny sense and reason in physical matters which are set before our eyes and minds by direct experience or necessary demonstrations.”

-Galileo Galilei

781 – “Science offers more than just facts and knowledge, but fills us with a sense of awe, curiosity, and reverence for the natural world that is incomparable to that of any other discipline.”
