Words for the Day

The creator is also the revealer. Creation is the prophecy which is confirmed only in the miraculous sign of revelation. It is not possible to believe creation because it provides an adequate explanation of the world riddle. [The one] who has not yet been reached by the voice of revelation has no right to accept the idea of creation as if it were a scientific hypothesis.

Franz Rosenzweig, *The Star of Redemption*, translated by William W. Hallo from the 2nd edition of 1930, University of Notre Dame Press, 2014/1985, 135.
