Quotes of the Day

"Those who are troubled by an apparent conflict between scientific and religious accounts of human origins may find it helpful to recall that different perspectives of life can be complementary. For example, the scientific account attempts to tell us when and how; religious creation stories usually aim to tell about an ultimate who and why. As Galileo explained to the Grand Duchess Christina: 'The Bible teaches how to go to heaven, not how the heavens go.'"

- David G. Myers, "Exploring Psychology, 7th Edition"

"The causes of life's history [cannot] resolve the riddle of life's meaning."

- Stephen Jay Gould, Rocks of Ages: Science and Religion in the Fullness of Life, 1999
