We are commonly faced with scientific theories that are not only different, but in open conflict with truths held sacred by the great religions. Because science and religion are ultimately dealing with the same substance I believe that science must - in the end - reconcile itself with these truths currently beyond its grasp.

He is guided by the words of German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer who said “The discovery of truth is prevented most effectively, not by the false appearance things present which mislead into error, nor directly by weakness of the reasoning powers, but by preconceived opinion, by prejudice, which as a pseudo a priori stands in the path of truth and is then like a contrary wind driving a ship away from land, so that sail and rudder labour in vain.”
