Religion and the New Science

"I HAVE NEVER been able to understand why men of science, or men of any sort, should have such a special affection for Disorganised Religion. They would hardly utter cries of hope and joy over the prospect of Disorganised Biology or Disorganised Botany. They would hardly wish to see the whole universe of astronomy disorganised, with no relations, no records, no responsibilities for the fulfillment of this or that function, no reliance on the regularity of this or that law."

~G.K. Chesterton:  Illustrated London News, April 12, 1930.
