Elder Epiphanios Theodoropoulos on Science

Elder Epiphanios Theodoropoulos

- "Natural sciences in essence describe and certify. They don't explain."

- The Elder said: "Professor Louvaris formulated in a first form the following argument, whose strength Ι have experienced in conversations: Marxists proclaim that there exists nothing beyond matter, and natural laws govern everything. However, nature knows οnly the law of strength (survival). The laws of love, compassion and justice are unknown to it. Based οn this logic, the fate of the lamb is for the wolf to eat it and for the rich person to oppress the poor person without ethical respon­sibility. Οnly the acceptance of ethical laws, after the rejection of materialism, can justify the demand for social justice."
