My theory of electrolysis; my ideas on electromagnetism and fields of force I shall leave to others to ponder and refine. I give forth the bold idea of antimaterialism; breaking the unanimous hold of millennia on matter that says its consideration must be either material or spiritual; giving freedom to thought.

I am content to bear the reproach; yet, even in earthly matters, I believe that the invisible things of Him from the creation of the worlds are clearly seen, being understood by the things which are made, even his eternal power and Godhead. 

Michael Faraday, 1870
