Quaker Culture: Science and Discovery

London Yearly Meeting
On Expansion (May 2018)
Quaker Culture

Science starts from wonder and the unceasing questioning of the free human spirit. The study of it enriches the mind through the fascinating and ever-widening picture of the universe that it provides . . . The power of the human mind when used methodically in the pursuit of truth . . . must not lead us to mistake the means for the end and to forget that in its practice we are engaged in discovering the truths of God’s creation . . .

London Yearly Meeting (1959)
