Creation and Evolution are topics which raise some hard questions: How did Nature start? (What is the real "origin of species"?) Were living things created by God, or did they evolve? (or both? ) How long ago did it all happen? What do the fossils actually tell us? Why are we still arguing about Darwin 130 years after his death? These questions are from a grey area where science, philosophy and religious belief overlap.
Excerpt from Outdoor Studies a Reading Book of Nature Study The years that intervene between the primary and the high school, for all of which nature study is now prescribed, cover a very wide period of mental development. For the earlier years of that period there is now no lack of books, offering object lessons, guides to random observations, stories of common things interweaving facts with interesting fancies to the edifying of imaginative childhood.
Excerpt from The Nature, Extent, and Province of Human Reason Considered To Minds, whose attachment to the Sacred Scriptures is something more than national, or professional; which feel, what they admire, and esteem; the departure of the times, from the obvious principles of divine Revelation, has long been a matter of sincere, and, it is hoped, of benevolent sensibility; a sensibility, which they would be ready, and which indeed they ought, to disavow, were they not persuaded, that it is founded on the Venus-tum, the Honestum, the Decorum of things.
Excerpt from On the Nature of Things The title of this work is the same as that of the poem of Lucretius which was written more than two thousand years ago. Since that time men have gained a much clearer insight into "the nature of things"; but while this is so in regard to the more complicated arrangements and properties of things, it is much less true in reference to their more fundamental nature.
Excerpt from Nature in the Witness-Box: Or, Suggestive Parallels All kingdoms were made by God, and lie parallel. The laws and phenomena of one kingdom, therefore, must have their counterparts in the other kingdoms. This great and ramifying Nature about us, visible and tangible and patent, was, I doubt not, meant by heaven to be for man a kindergarten school, wherein he might learn not only things earthly but also things heavenly.
Excerpt from Taking Hold of God Studies on the Nature, Need and Power of Prayer We believe that "at the name of Jesus every knee should bow" and that He alone who taught his early disciples can also teach us how to pray. We believe that prayer is a great reality; that prayer changes things; that prayer, if a lost art, is lost only for those who have lost the consciousness of God.

The First Book of T. Lucretius Carus of the Nature of Things: Paperback: Wentworth Press: 9781362324614: 26 Aug 2016
Titus Lucretius Carus (99 BC c. 55 BC) was a Roman poet and philosopher. His only known work is the epic philosophical poem De rerum natura about the tenets and philosophy of Epicureanism, and which is usually translated into English as On the Nature of Things. Very little is known about Lucretius's life; the only certain fact is that he was either a friend or client of Gaius Memmius, to whom the poem was addressed and dedicated.
Excerpt from An Essay on the Nature and Immutability: Truth, in Opposition to Sophistry and Scepticism To those who love learning and mankind, and who are more ambitious to distinguish themselves as men, than as disputants, it is matter of humiliation and regret, that names and things have so oft been mistaken for each other; that so much of the philosopher's time must be employed in ascertaining the signification of worth; and that so many doctrines, of high reputation, and of ancient date, when traced to their first principles, have been found to terminate in verbal ambiguity.

Nature is a topic in many Indian and Tibetan philosophical texts, although its meaning varies considerably in both Hindu and Buddhist scriptures. The discussion of nature pursued in this book begins with Nagarjuna (first century), founder of the Middle Way School, who refuted a fabricated nature in his Treatise on the Middle. In that seminal text, he puts forth the three basic criteria for nature: it must be something that is non-fabricated, independent, and immutable.

From the rediscovery of Alfred North Whitehead s work to the rise of new materialist thought, including object-oriented ontology, there has been a rapid turn toward speculation in philosophy as a way of moving beyond solely human perceptions of nature and existence. Now Steven Shaviro maps this quickly emerging speculative realism, which is already dramatically influencing how we interpret reality and our place in a universe in which humans are not the measure of all things.
For scholars in the European Middle Ages, Isidore, bishop of Seville (560-636) was one of the most influential authorities for understanding he natural world. Isidore's On the Nature of Things is the first work on natural science by a Christian author that is not a commentary on the creation story in Genesis. Instead, Isidore adopted a classical model to describe the structure of the physical cosmos, and discuss the principles of astronomy, physics, geography, meteorology and time-reckoning.
