The most famous scientist and the most important priest of the twentieth century have these comments about science:
The scientific method can teach us nothing else beyond how facts are related to,and conditioned by, each other. The aspiration toward such objective knowledge belongs to the highest of which man is capable. Yet it is equally clear that knowledge of what is does not open the door directly to what should be.
Religion, on the other hand, deals only with evaluations of human thought and action; it cannot justifiably speak of facts and relationships between facts.
Science without religion is lame.
Religion without science is blind.
-- Albert Einstein
One might well become impatient or lose heart at the sight of so many minds remaining today still closed to the idea of evolution. Blind indeed are those who do not see the sweep of a movement whose orbit infinitely transcends the natural sciences. Evolution is a light illuminating all facts, a curve that all lines must follow.
I do not propose today to deal directly with the question of discovering what it is that makes science valuable, and even dispensable, for the full development of the Christian; all I shall try to do is to make you love science in a Christian way.
-- Father Teilhard de Chardin
