Elder Richard G Scott on Knowledge from Science and Inspiration

During the LDS Church general conference last weekend, Elder Richard G Scott of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles gave a speech on "Truth: The Foundation of Correct Decisions". The focus of his speech was on two ways to find truth: the scientific method and inspiration, "both useful, provided we follow the laws upon which they are predicated". A transcript of the speech is available here, and a video is available here.


I enjoyed the speech, and was particularly happy to see a high authority in the LDS Church continue the long Mormon tradition of recognizing the importance of science and its compatibility with spiritual matters. There are some aspects of the speech with which I may disagree, depending on interpretation, such as Elder Scott's appeals to absolutes, which, so far as I am concerned, have place in Mormon theology only as ideal abstractions across eternities. The God in which I put my faith progresses in both knowledge and power forever, as perhaps you and I will.
