The glory and greatness of almighty God are marvelously discerned in all his works and divinely read in the open book of Heaven

The book of nature is a book written by the hand of God in the language of mathematics

                                                            … Galileo

 

The true God is a living, intelligent, powerful being.

Behind all existence there is an intelligent, aware, omnipotent God. Any other assumption is inconsistent with my system

 

                                                                   … Isaac Newton

 

The universe has been wrought for us by a supremely good and orderly Creator

 

                                                                    … Copernicus

 

God is a kind Creator who brought forth nature out of nothing.

“I had the intention of becoming a theologian… but now I see God is glorified in astronomy … the heavens declare the glory of God”

                                                   … Johannes Kepler, Laws of planetary motion

“I find it difficult to understand a scientist who does not acknowledge the presence of a superior rationality behind the existence of the universe”

 

          … Werner Von Braun, physicist, “Father of the American Space

               Program” Life Magazine’s “100 Most Important Americans of

               the 20th Century”

 

 

Everyone who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe- a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble

                                                                    … Albert Einstein

First, the truth of scripture must be held inviolable. Secondly, when there are different ways of explaining a Scriptural text, no particular explanation should be held so rigidly that, if convincing arguments show it to be false, anyone dare to insist that it still is the definitive sense of the text. Otherwise, unbelievers will scorn Sacred Scripture, and the way of faith will be closed to them.

 

                                                                     … Thomas Aquinas
