19. Can humankind penetrate some of the secrets of nature through scientific investigations and research?
“Science is a means of development for human beings, but they cannot surpass the limits set by God.”
The farther humans penetrate the investigation of these mysteries, the greater their veneration of the power and wisdom of the Creator should be. However, due to pride and weakness, human intelligence often leads to misconceptions. Humans pile systems on top of systems and every single day they learn how many errors they have mistaken for truths, and how many truths they have dismissed as errors. This amounts to more disappointment than human pride can bear.
