A Quote by Delbert L. Stapley on achievement, age, angels, argument, atheism, discovery, doubt, divinity, earth, existence, god, heaven, knowledge, life, men, nations, people, power, progress, religion, science, scientists, spirit, and success

The Lord has literally poured out His spirit upon all flesh, as the accomplishments of man today give full witness. It is significant that this great thrust forward in man's achievement and progress and this pouring out of knowledge is not confined to any one nation or people, but it seems that new knowledge from heaven comes simultaneously to every advanced, civilized nation. No nation has a corner on the knowledge God is pouring down from heaven upon all flesh. With this great flood of knowledge and light, men, not recognizing its source, do become imbued with self-importance and power. Recently a Russian scientist, E. T. Fadeyev, head of the scientific-atheistic section of the journal Science and Life, is quoted as saying: Successful flights of earth satellites and rockets cast doubt on the existence of God and refute religious dogma. Rockets and satellites have encountered no angels nor discovered a Supreme Being. Religious dogma holds that it is possible to ascend to heaven only through divine intervention. But in an age of jet aircraft and high altitude rockets, artificial earth satellites and interplanetary ships, it is comical to argue that man cannot reach the heavens. (Los Angeles Herald.)
