“My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God” (Ps 84:2). William Davidson (1848-1929), Scottish professor of logic at the University of Aberdeen, wrote: “Human nature in its entirety postulates God. Man’s intellect, dealing with the systematic interpretation of the universe, demands Him as the ultimate explicatory term: He is the supreme unity in which alone the human mind can rest. Man’s aesthetic craving, the great human sentiments and emotions, more especially the beautiful and the sublime, demand Him. He is the source and fountain of beauty and majesty and grandeur, therefore of the deep religious emotions of adoration and reverence. He is demanded also by man’s will and desires; and the sense of dependence and the august requirements of the conscience open the heart and cry aloud for Him…In Him we find the divine realization of all that in us seeks the highest and best, and the fulfillment of our deepest purposes, aspirations and longings.”
