From, WE BELIEVE IN GOD The Greatest Artists, Musicians, Philosophers, Scientists and Writers Believed in God





     “God . . . from whom we acknowledge all things to be received.” (Brahe, 1969, 1)


     “God who ruleth the heavens shall rule all things on earth.” (Ibid., 19)


     “It is impossible to set forth a certain time for the consummation of the world, which only dependeth upon the good will and pleasure of God, and is not revealed to angels, and therefore cannot be known by any human prescience.” (Ibid., 20)


     “For who, after applying himself to things which he sees established in the best order and directed by divine ruling, would not through contemplation and them and through a certain habituation be awakened to that which is best and would not admire the Artificer of all things,

in Whom is all happiness and every good? For the divine psalmist surely did not say gratuitously that he took pleasure in the workings of God and rejoiced in the works of His hands, unless by means of those things as by some sort of vehicle we are transported to the contemplation of the highest good?”

(Copernicus, 1873, 10-11) 


    “God, without whom we can do nothing.” (Ibid., 12)



      "I believe in Spinoza's God, who reveals Himself in  the harmony of all being."

(Schilpp, 1969, 103)


      "You believe in God playing dice, and I in perfect laws in the world of things existing as real objects, which I try to grasp in a wildly speculative way"

(Ibid., 176)


    "I defend the Good God against the idea of a continuous game of dice."

(Speziali, 1972, 425)


        "I'm not much with people, and I'm not a family man. I want my peace. I want to know how God created this world. I am not interested in this or that phenomena in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts, the rest are details."

(Clarck, 1971, 18-19)


     "The scientist's religious feeling takes the form of a rapturous amazement at the harmony of natural law, which reveals an intelligence of such superiority that, compared with it, all the systematic thinking and acting of human beings is an utterly insignificant reflection."

(Iain, 1982, 57)




     “Death has to the Christian everything hoped for, contained in the idea of reunion. I cannot think.  I cannot think that death has to the Christian anything in it that should make it a rare, or other than a constant, thought; out of the view of death comes the view of the life beyond the grave, as out of the view of sin (that true and real view which the Holy spirit alone can give to man) comes the glorious hope; without the conviction of sin there is no ground of hope to the Christian.”

(Faraday II, 1870, 424)


     “As though death be repugnant to the flesh, yet where the Spirit is given, to die is gain.”

(Ibid., 424)


     “And though the thought of death brings the thought of judgment, which is far above all the trouble that arises from the breaking of mere earthly ties, it also brings to the Christian the thought of Him who died, was judged and who rose again for the justification of those who believe in Him.”

(Ibid., 424)


     “Though fear of death can be a great thought, the hope of eternal life is far greater. Much more is the phrase the apostle uses in such comparisons. Though sin has reigned unto death, much more is the hope of eternal life through Jesus Christ.”

(Ibid., 424-425)


    “Though we may well fear for ourselves and our faith, much more may we trust in Him who is faithful; and though we have the treasures in earthen vessels, and so are surrounded by the infirmities of the flesh with all the accompanying hesitation – temptations and the attacks of the Adversary – yet it is that the excellency of the power of God may be with us.”

(Ibid., 425)


     “There is far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory for them who, through God’s power,

look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For we are utterly insufficient for these things, but the sufficiency is of God, and that makes it fit for His people – His strength perfect in their weakness.”

(Ibid., 425)


     “The Christian . . .  is taught of God (by His Word and the Holy Spirit) to trust in the promise of salvation though the work of Jesus Christ. He finds his guide in the Word of God, and commits the keeping of his soul into the hands of God. He looks for no assurance beyond what the Word can give him, and if his mind is troubled by the cares and fears which may assail him, he can go nowhere but in his prayer to the throne of grace and to the Scripture.”

(Ibid., 426)



     “As to the truth, of which mathematical demonstrations give us the knowledge, it is the same which the Divine Wisdom knoweth; but . . .  the manner whereby God knoweth the infinite propositions, whereof we understand some few, is highly more excellent than ours, which proceedeth by ratiocination, and passeth from conclusion to conclusion, whereas His is done at a single thought or intuition. Now the inferences which our intellect apprehendeth with time and a gradual motion the Divine Wisdom, like light, penetrateth in an instant, which is the same as to say, hath them always present.”

(Burtt, 1951, 72)


     “May it be our lot, by the grace of the true Son, pure and immaculate, to learn from Him, with all other truths, that which we are now seeking.”

(Poupard, 1983, 42)


     “God could have made birds with bones of massive gold, with veins full of molten silver, with flesh heavier than lead and with tiny wings . . . He could have made fish heavier than lead, and thus twelve times heavier than water, but He has wished to make the former of bone, flesh, and feathers that are light enough, and the latter as heavier than water, to teach us that He rejoices in simplicity and facility.”

(Ibid., 99)


     “I therefore conclude, that our knowledge . . . is separated from the Divine knowledge by an infinite interval.”

(Ibid., 101)


    “When I reflect on so many profoundly marvelous things that persons have grasped, sought, and done I recognize even more clearly that human intelligence is a work of God, and one of the most excellent.”

(Ibid., 101)


“To the Lord; whom I worship and thank;

That governs the heavens with His eyelid

To Him I return tired, but full of living.”

(Chiari, 1970, 321)


      “To me the works of nature and of God are  miraculous.”

(Brunetti, 1964, 506)


     “One must not doubt the possibility that the Divine Goodness at times may choose to inspire a ray of His immense knowledge in low and high intellects when they are adorned with sincere and holy zeal.”

(Ibid., 545)


    “I trust the infinite goodness of God may direct toward the purity of my mind a small amount of His grace that I may understand the meaning of His words.”

(Ibid., 550)


     “The Holy Scriptures cannot lie.”

(Ibid., 558)




"For there is no other way (without revelation), to know God but by the manifestations in nature."

(Christianson, 257)


"He is the God of organization not of disarray."

(Ibid., 261)


“For the Bible is not chained in every expression to conditions as strict as those that govern all physical effects; nor is God any less excellently revealed in Nature’s actions than in the sacred testaments of the Bible.”

(Ibid., 252)

“The supreme God exists necessarily, and by the same necessity He exists always and everywhere. Whence also He is all similar, all eye, all ear, all brain, all arm, all power to perceive, to understand, and to act; but in a manner not at all human, in a manner not at all corporeal, in a manner utterly unknown to us. As a blind man has no idea of colors, so have we no idea of the manner by which the all-wise God perceives and understands all things. He is utterly void of all body and bodily figure, and can, therefore neither be seen or heard or touched; nor ought He to be worshiped under the representation of any corporeal thing. We have ideas of His attributes but what the real substance of anything is we know not. In bodies we see only their figures and colors, we hear only the sound, we touch only their outward surfaces, we smell only the smells and taste the savors, but their inward substances are not to be known either by our senses or by any reflex act of our minds; much less, then, have we any idea of the substance of God. We know Him only by His most wise and excellent contrivances of things and final causes; we admire Him for His perfections, but we reverence and adore Him on account of His dominion, for we adore Him as His servants.”

(Thayer, 1953, 45)


     “From His true dominion it follows that the true God is a living, intelligent and powerful being; and from His other perfections, that He is supreme, or most perfect. He is eternal and infinite, omnipotent and omniscient; that is, His duration reaches from eternity to eternity; His presence from infinity to infinity; He governs all things, and knows all things that are or can be done. He is not eternity or infinity, but eternal and infinite; He is not duration or space, but He endureth and is present. He endureth forever, and is everywhere present; and by existing always and everywhere, He constitutes duration and space . . . In Him are all things contained and moved.”

(Burtt, 1951, 257)

     “I must profess I know no sufficient natural cause of the earth diurnal motion. Where natural causes are at hand God uses them as instruments in His works, but I do not think them alone sufficient for His creation and therefore may be allowed to suppose that amongst other things God gave the earth its motion by such degrees and at such times as was most suitable to His creatures.”

Turnbull, 1960, 334)



     “We acknowledge God, the Supreme and Omnipotent Creator, to be present in the production of all animals, and to point, as it were, with a finger to His existence in His works, the parents being in every case but the instruments in His hands. In the generation of the Pullet from the egg all things are indeed contrived and ordered with singular providence, divine wisdom, and most admirable and incomprehensible skill. And to none can these attributes be referred save to the Almighty, first cause of all things . . . the Creator and Father of all that is in heaven and earth, on whom animals depend for their being, and at whose will and pleasure all things are and were engendered.”

(Harvey, 1989, 443)


     “The Omnipotent Maker of all things . . .  upon Whom all animals and their births depend: and at Whose beck, or mandate, all things are created and begotten.”

(Keynes, 1966, 94)


     “It had pleased God by His hands o humble me so low.”

(Ibid., 249)


     “The examination of the bodies of animals has always been my delight, and I have thought that we might thence not only obtain an insight into the lighter mysteries of nature, but there perceive a kind of image or reflection of the omnipotent Creator Himself.”

(Ibid., 330)


     (God) “Who has not contrived the shell for the defense of the egg with less of skill and foresight that he has composed all other parts of the egg of the same matter, and produced it under the influence of the same formative faculty.”

(Pagel, 1967, 235)


       "Great is our Lord and great is His strength and there is no number to His wisdom. Praise Him heavens, praise Him sun, moon, planets, whatever sense you may use to perceive, whatever tongue to express our Creator. Praise Him heavenly  harmonies, praise Him you witnesses of the (now) detected harmonies. Praise also you, my soul, your Lord the Creator as long as I shall be. For from Him and through Him, and in Him is all. . . To Him be praise, honour and glory into all eternity. Amen.

(Beer, 1975, 361)


     "But we Christians . . . know that the eternal and uncreated Logos who was with God and who is contained by no abode. . . has occupied the heavens as His royal  abode."

(Ibid., 356)



     “In good philosophy, the word cause ought to be reserved to the single divine impulse that has formed the universe.”

(Geison, 1995, 141-142)


     “The atmosphere in which we live swarms with the germs of those microscopic creatures, which are always ready to multiply in dead matter wherever it presents itself, and thus to fulfil the mission of destruction which is correlative to their life. And if God had not so arranged things that, under normal conditions of life and health, the laws governing the changes in tissues and fluids of animal’s bodies did not impede the proliferation of these microscopic creatures, we should always be vulnerable to their inroads.”

(Cuny, 1966, 161)
