Quote for the Day

I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with senses, reason and intellect has intended us to forego their use and by some other means to give us knowledge which we can attain by them. He would not require us to deny sense and reason in physical matters which are set before our eyes and minds by direct experience or necessary demonstrations.

Galileo Galilei

  1. Sounds like Galileo was the very model of a modern Unitarian way back when. . .

    Now if only more modern Unitarian*Univeralists would pay heed to his words today the U*U World might be a much better place than it is.
