Fydor Dostoevsky

Dostoevsky.jpg (8413 bytes)


"All of Europe's misfortune, all of it's ills, without exception, harken back to it's loss of Christ with the establishment of the Roman Church, after which they have decided that they could manage just as well without Christ."   Fydor Dostoevsky in 1870


If science is unable to provide for people's subsistence, and there is a shortage of space, people are going to throw their babies into latrines, or eat them. I won't be surprised if they do both, especially if science suggests it to them. When food becomes scarce and science becomes unable to provide for food and fuel, whereas the world's population continues to rise, it will become necessary to stop the further growth of population. Science says it isn't your fault nature has arranged things that way, and the instinct of self-preservation being first and foremost, it follows that babies must be burnt. That is the morality of science. So the burning of babies will become habitual. For all the moral principles in man are only relative if he must rely on nothing but his own strength.
Fydor Dostoevsky, The Notebooks of the Possessed

To me Fydor Dostoevsky is simply the best novelist of all time.  Not only a novelist but a Preacher of the Truth, of Orthodoxy, and of the Saving Love of Christ our Saviour.  If it was not for Fydor Dostoevsky I would not be Orthodox.

Dostoevsky was born on October 30, 1821 and he reposed in the Lord on January 28 1881.  He is buried at the cemetery of Alexander Nevsky Monastery.
