Words by Albert Schweitzer " At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us. " - UU Hymnal 447

"The religion that is afraid of science dishonors God."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Empirical science offers these well-subtantiated facts:
The Universe is billions of years old. Complex atoms were forged in the cores of stars.
Earth is younger than the Milky Way Galaxy. Life evolved from the simple from the simple to the complex.
Dinosaurs and sabertooth cats once roamed this planet.
We have "tailbones" because our ancient ancestors had functional tails.
All peoples evolved creation stories, and these creation stories differ
one to the next, sourced by different environments and different life experiences.
Emperical science, however, says nothing about the meaning of all these facts.
That is the province of interepretation."

-Thank God for Evolution, Michael Dowd -2008- page 32-33

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.~John Burroughs
