Science which has become a great power in the last
century, has analyzed everything divine handed down to
us in the holy books. After this cruel analysis the
learned of this world have nothing left of all that
was sacred. But they have only analyzed the parts and
overlooked the whole, and indeed their blindness is
marvelous.


Fyodor Dostoyevsky
