(The term universe comes from the Latin universum, which means “turned toward unity.”)

The universe, including life on earth, displays a unity in diversity. The infinite variations in nature are infinite aspects of a unified whole governed by a few simple mathematical laws. The fact that the universe is coherent, unified, and intelligible makes it possible for us to study it and discover its patterns. We must never forget that we arise from nature and are subject to its patterns and laws. We are part of the unity in diversity written into the fabric of reality itself. If we try to build a culture based on anything opposed to this natural law, which is God’s law, we will doom ourselves to ultimate failure.
