We are made in God's image and likeness. What God does best of all is create life. That's what we want to do as well. We have deep within us a desire to know how this world and all that is in it works. Down through the ages we have figured out better and more efficient ways to improve life. We also know that we have much more to learn, especially how to live in a life-giving relationship with one another. The Catholic Church values and has promoted learning in every field from music, to medicine, to science. Every great religion provides a foundation and framework for continued learning.
