There was this angel who was following this man named Ben Franklin. After a long time Ben Franklin went out with a Kite and discovered Electricity. The angel was so astonished he went to God and said "God, See this man Ben Franklin Discovered Electricity" and God said "Its about time".
The Bible never preaches blind devotion, in fact if you find the greatest of those in the bible were also the most learned. Moses (court learning), Jesus (was in the temple lecturing the teachers at 12), and many others, Paul, Matthew, etc. God wants you to worship him with your mind, not just your heart and body. Those that INSIST on blind devotion are the same people that are told "Hey, I will take your money and give it to someone else and its good for you" and they believe it.
Remember: Bible is Why, Science is How.
