ON THE INNOVATION OF MANKIND

 

The creation of Man by God was itself a new invention, one so remarkable that it was celebrated by the angelic hosts when they ‘sang together’ (Job 38: 4-7). Man, in his turn, has invented new things, for example, introducing into the natural order chemicals and structural combinations which never before existed. This ability to synthesise something new from existing components – that is, to add to the universal store of information – is most remarkable, and exhibits a God-given tendency toward novelty, a necessary component of an interesting and useful existence on earth.
