This Wonderful Universe

Bet you can't guess who said this.

I cannot be contented to view this wonderful universe, and especially the nature of man, and to conclude that everything is the result of brute force. I am inclined to look at everything as resulting from designed laws, with the details, whether good or bad, left to the working out of what we may call chance. Not that this notion at all satisfies me. I feel most deeply that the whole subject is too profound for the human intellect. A dog might as well speculate on the mind of Newton. Let each man hope and believe what he can.

To put it in context, Evolution vs. Intelligent Design is an interesting debate. But whatever your persuasion about how this wonderful universe started rolling, let alone took off its training wheels, don't be a dog...

Great Darwin quote. Even he could see the consistency between his theory and Design.
