Naturally related and interconnected

November 27, 2011

Religion to me is science, and science is religion. In that deeply-felt truth lies the secret of my intense devotion to the reading of God’s natural works… The intellectual, the moral, the religious seem to me all naturally bound up and interlinked together in one great and harmonious whole.

That God is one, and that all the works and the feelings He has called into existence are ONE; this is a truth (a biblical and scriptural truth too) not in my opinion developed to the apprehension of most people in its really deep and unfathomable meaning. There is too much tendency to making separate and independent bundles of both the physical and the moral facts of the universe. Whereas, all and everything is naturally related and interconnected. A volume could I write you on this subject…

– Ada Lovelace (10 December 1815 – 27 November 1852), the founder of scientific computing, from her private correspondence to Andrew Crosse as published in The Argosy, Volume 8 (1869)
