“Science teaches what the poets already knew”.
I just found this quote on someone’s social media site. I don’t have a source to attribute it to though. Can someone please help? Please put it in a comment.
I believe that science teaches what the BIBLE already taught us. There are instances in which science has said something where it is just a confirmation of what is written. Science confirms what we should take for on faith since God already taught us.
Many of the poets in the romantic period had their roots in the bible (William Blake) or in what nature has to teach (Wordsworth). It makes sense then that the poets knew things scientists didn’t.
