To serve one’s country and church
Only content to give one’s all
Said Jefferson, “Bacon, Newton and Locke…are my trinity of the three greatest men the world has ever produced.”
Francis Bacon was known for developing the scientific method and is known as the “Father of Modern Science”.
He declared that his threefold goal was to discover truth, serve his country, and serve the church. He asserted that vigorous pursuit of truth would always lead one directly to God.
