Richard Dawkins counselled religionists to read more than one book.

Dawkins is probably right, after all he read our Bible. As religionists we function on deep feelings, discernment, inspiration; hardly acceptable to those scientists that worship the scientific method. We would do well to read about modern scientific theory and other informative writings. We might avoid saying ill-informed things such as, “There were dinosaurs on Noah’s Ark.”

Scripture suggests, “And as all have not faith, seek ye diligently and teach one another words of wisdom; yea, seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom; seek learning, even by study and also by faith.” (Doctrine and Covenants 88:118)

Excerpt from the novel, Marty’s Dark Matter:

Marty attended church events with her family because she wanted to be with them. She told her children to make up their own minds about religion. Sunday was Ty’s day to read doctrinal books and rest from the complicated world of physics.

Marty was reading a book about her new fascination with light. “Did you know that beyond the seven colors of a rainbow, there are more than one million colors, including colors the human eye cannot see?”

“Did you know no one sees the same rainbow?” Ty teased. “I wonder if our eyes see, or if it’s our minds that determine what we see? Someone as confused as you might view things differently than someone as inspired as I am.” Ty laughed.

“I see more than you do.” Marty picked up a couch pillow and threw it at him.
