Quote of the Day: The Fabricated War Between Science and Religion

The antagonism between science and religion, about which we hear so much, appears to me to be purely factitious — fabricated, on the one hand, by short-sighted religious people who confound a certain branch of science, theology, with religion; and, on the other, by equally short-sighted scientific people who forget that science takes for its province only that which is susceptible of clear intellectual comprehension; and that, outside the boundaries of that province, they must be content with imagination, with hope, and with ignorance. (Thomas Huxley 1885)

  1. St Huxley was one of the truest humanists. Like me he just happened not to believe in God. And THAT is irrelevant… Thank you for spreading his wisdom 🙂
