Creation and science

Magnificent stuff from 17th-century scientist Robert Boyle on the purpose of creation and its connection to the pursuit of science:

"He created this vast fabrick of the world to manifest his wisdom, power, and goodness; and in it created man, that it may have an intelligent spectator, and a resident, whose rational admiration of so divine a structure may accrue to the glory of the omniscient and almighty architect."
