Science: Natural Philosophy

“Be instructed more perfectly…Of things both in heaven and in the earth, and under the earth;” (D&C 88: 78-79)

“It is through work not words that we must seek divine and scientific truth.” -Dimitri Mendeleyev

“If thou shalt ask, thou shalt receive revelation upon revelation, knowledge upon knowledge, that thou mayest know the mysteries and peaceable things—that which bringeth joy, that which bringeth life eternal…unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom, but unto the world it is not given to know them.” (D&C 42:61, 65)

Antoine Lavoisier the chemist spent 3 hours each morning before work in his private chemistry lab, then went to work as an accountant/lawyer. He also returned to his lab after dinner. He did not let his mandatory day job get in the way of his research. Eventually, his day job became his passion. He had imported materials at great expense to make one of the best private labs on earth.
