Superstition? Who can define the boundary line between the superstition of yesterday and the scientific fact of tomorrow?
If there were a clear prospect that such evils were part of a barbarian past, then at least we might find a small crumb of comfort. No such prospect exists: no scientific analysis can even remotely answer or account for past and present horrors of human behaviour.
Simon Conway Morris

The curriculum of the school did not neglect India's cultural, analytical and scientific heritage, but was very involved also with the rest of the world.
Privacy about giving is counterproductive. There is solid scientific research showing that people are more likely to give if they can see that others are giving. The richest people, in particular, should be setting an example.
I believe all complicated phenomena can be explained by simpler scientific principles.
There is no scientific explanation for the fact that while my body lay in coma, my mind - my conscious, inner self - was alive and well.

All of creation, in the biblical view, was to ultimately prepare the way for the creation of man. But one does not need the Bible alone to hold this view.
