I See No Doom1 Down an Alley2我看见的不是死胡同

By Herbert Hoover

My professional training was in science and engineering. That is a training in the search for truth, and its application to the use of mankind. With a gloss3 of science we have a continuous contention4 from a tribe of atheistic5~~ philosophers. That there is an implacable comment between science and religion, in which religion will be vanquished6. I do not believe it.

I believe not only that religious faith will be victorious7, but that it is vital to mankind that it shall be. We made differ in form and particular in our religious faith. Those are matters which are secret to each of our inner sanctuaries8, but it is our ~ to the cline to arguer about it.

Their real demonstration9 is the life that we live. But there is one foundation common to all religious faith. Our discoveries in science have pulled that all the way from the galaxies10 in the heavens to the constitution of the atom. The universe is controlled by an inflexible11 law. Somewhere a supreme12 part created these laws. At some period, man was differentiated13 from the beasts and was endowed with a spirit from which bring his/ conscience, idealism and spiritual yearnings.

It is impossible to believe that there is not here a divine touch and the purpose from the creator of the universe. I believe we can express these things only in religious faith. From their religious faith, the founding fathers annunciated the most fundamental law of human progress since the sermon on the mount when they stated that man receive from the creator certain inalienable rights and that these rights should be protected from ~ of others by law and justice.

The ~ and atheistic philosophers have thought to declaim progress in terms of materialism14 alone. But from once came the morals, the spiritual yearnings, the faith, the aspirations15 to justice and freedom of mind, which have been the roots our progress always growing societies record their faith in God. Decaying societies lack faith and deny God. But America is not a decaying society, it remains16 strong. It’s faith is in compassion17 and in God's intelligent mercy.
