Quotes from Daniel's Works
Every advance in science makes manifest a working that is cloaked by its very success.
"The gazelles don't have to run to the ends of the earth to escape a lion," his father explained. "A single burst of speed will carry them beyond pursuit whether the lion makes its kill or not. If the lion makes its kill, further pursuit is unnecessary, and if it misses its kill, further pursuit is pointless, because the lion has no hope of outmatching the gazelles' speed once they're alerted. Either way, a single bound is as good as a thousand once the gazelles have evaded the lion's first blow."
"But if the lion misses its kill, won't it stalk the gazelles one by one?" Abel asked.
"It may," Adam replied. "But what of it? Do you think the gazelles should run to the ends of the earth every time a lion is in the neighborhood? What would they find there except another lion?
