"Let me first remark, in reply, that I come before you this evening, not as a philologist, but
simply as a student of geological fact, who, believing his Bible, believes
also, that though theologians have at various times striven hard to pledge
it to false science, geographical, astronomical, and geological, it has been pledged by its Divine Author
to no falsehood whatever."
-Hugh Miller from Testimony of the Rocks.
