Quote of the Day, By Dr. James D. Strauss

I had previously written a tribute to Doc Strauss, my mentor and friend, who passed away recently. So I was listening to a few of his lectures and found a really interesting quote I never heard him acknowledge until now.
The chart I gave you didn't show how many times the church has taken a stand against the scientific enterprise. Up to the 18th-19th century the church has historically taken a stand against every development in the sciences.
You can hear him say it starting about 1:55 in this recording of one of his class lectures:

If you want to know the influence he had over me as a student listen to the whole lecture. It's slow going at first but at around 18:30 and following you can see how much he knows and how good he was as a teacher. This is quintessential Strauss.
