Evidence

‘Truth, indeed,is stranger than fiction, and scientific facts more wonderful than the most imaginative plot written by a Wells or a Conan Doyle,and more engrossing than those romances pictorially illustrated by any “movie” artist in his most fascinating moments. In considering this entrancing subject of science in its popular aspects, I love to remember that beautiful thought which Longfellow puts into his poem on “The Fifteenth [Fiftieth] Birthday of Agassiz” – “And nature, the old nurse, took The child upon her knee, Saying, “Here is a story-book Thy Father has written for thee.” “Come wander with me”, she said “Into regions yet untrod And read what is still unread In the manuscripts of God.” And he wandered away and away With Nature, the dear old nurse, Who sang to him night and day The rhymes of the Universe. And whenever the way seemed long Or his heart began to fail, She would sing a more wonderful song Or tell a more marvellous tale.”"
