[3/7] Seven Quotes ♦ Edward Elric (City of Heresy; Monologue)
What about bringing the dead back to life? Do you believe that’s possible too? Water, 35 liters; carbon, 20 kilograms; ammonia, 4 liters; lime, 1.5 kilograms; phosphorus, 800 grams; salt, 250 grams; saltpeter, 100 grams, and various other trace elements. That list represents the complete chemical makeup of a human body for the average adult. It’s been calculated to the last microgram, but still there’s never been one reported case of successfully creating a human life. And you’re telling me something modern science can’t do, you can do with prayer? Did I mention all those ingredients I read off? Down at the market, a kid could buy every one of them for the spare change in his pocket. As it turns out, humans are pretty cheap. You have to understand, alchemists are scientists. We don’t believe in unprovable concepts like creators or gods … We observe the physical laws that govern this world to try to learn the truth. It’s ironic, really. That through the application of science, we have in many ways been given the power to play gods ourselves. You know there’s an old myth … about a hero who flew on wings made of wax … He thought he could touch the sun, but when he got too close, his wings melted, and he came crashing back down to Earth … Right, Al?
