      I See No Doom Down an Alley


      By Herbert Hoover



      My professional training was in science and engineering. That is a training in the search for truth, and its application to the use of mankind. With a growth of science we've had a continuous contention from a tribe of atheistic and agnostic philosophers. That there is an implacable conflict between science and religion, in which religion will be vanquished. I do not believe it.


      I believe not only that religious faith will be victorious, but that it is vital to mankind that it shall be. We made differ in form and particulars in our religious faith. Those are matters which are secret to each of our inner sanctuaries, it is our privilege to decline to argue them.


      Their real demonstration is the lives that we live. But there is one foundation common to all religious faith. Our discoveries in science have proved that all the way from the galaxies in the heavens to the constitution of the atom. The universe is controlled by inflexible laws

      . Somewhere a supreme power created these laws. At some period, man was differentiated from the beasts and was endowed with a spirit from which spring conscience, idealism and spiritual yearnings.


      It is impossible to believe that there is not here a divine touch and the purpose from the creator of the universe. I believe we can express these things only in religious faith. From their religious faith, the founding fathers annunciated the most fundamental law of human progressed since the sermon on the mount when they stated that man receive from the creator certain inalienable rights and that these rights should be protected from the encroachment of others by law and justice.


      The agnostic and atheistic philosophers have thought to declaim progress in terms of materialism alone. But from once came the morals, the spiritual yearnings, the faith, the aspirations to justice and freedom of mind, which have been the roots of our progress. Always growing societies record their faith in God. Decaying societies lack faith and deny God. But America is not a decaying society, it remains strong. It’s faith is in compassion and in God's intelligent mercy.
