2 Tage und 1 Stunde seit der letzten Verbannung eines Taugenichts.
[T]he faith in the possibility ot science, generated antecedently to the development of modern scientific theory, is an unconscious derivative from medieval theology.
Science has never shaken off the impress of its origin in the historical revolt of the later Renaissance. It has remained predominantly an anti-rationalistic movement, based upon a naive faith.
[T]he clergy were in principle rationalists, whereas the men of science were content with a simple faith in the order of nature.
The earlier period [gemeint: Mittelalter] was the age of faith, based upon reason. In the later period, they let sleeping dogs lie: it was the age of reason, based upon faith.
(A. N. Whitehead in „Science and the modern world“)
