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. (AP)
