Quote by A.W. Tozer

Philosophy and science have not always been friendly toward the idea of God, the reason being they are dedicated to the task of accounting for things and are impatient with anything that refuses to give an account of itself. The philosopher and the scientist will admit that there is much that they do not know; but that is quite another thing from admitting there is something which they can never know, which indeed they have no technique for discovering.

Philosophy and science have not always been friendly toward


This quote suggests that philosophy and science have often been resistant to the concept of God because their primary objective is to explain and understand things through logical and empirical means. They are inclined to be skeptical of phenomena that cannot be explained or examined. While both philosophers and scientists acknowledge their limitations and the vastness of unknowns, they are unwilling to accept the existence of something that is beyond their understanding and cannot be approached through their respective methodologies.
