but you just told me our senses are limited and we can't depend on our eyes to tell the truth. ... Ah!, But we have mathematics, haven't we? This gives me freedom from my senses. P.11 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Nature doesn't know chance, it operates on mathematical principles. As I have said so many times, God doesn't play dice with the world. P.58 ----------------------------------- Law is that which, under the same circumstances, acts and remains the same.... Yes. Nothing is absolute. Laws are relative to circumstances, and change comes without knowledge of them.... To me, God is a mystery, but a comprehensible mystery. I have nothing but awe when I observe the laws of nature. There are not laws without a lawgiver, but how does this lawgiver look? Certainly not like a man magnified. P.60 --------------------------------------- My God may not be your idea of god, but one thingI know of my God - he makes me a humanitarian. P.106 ----------------------------
