I’ve tried as hard as I possibly can to make peace with Christians, but they refuse to budge. With them, it’s faith or science. Pick one, because you can’t believe in both. Everything from creation to climate change falls to one side or the other. I can’t count the number of Christians I’ve come across that say – without apology or equivocation – that they don’t believe in science.
There are the laws of man, and then there are the laws of God. The laws of science are the laws of man. That’s not what I believe. That’s what Christians keep repeating to me like they were praying the Rosary or something. I may not be smart enough to bridge the chasm between faith and science, but I think these guys are more than qualified:
“I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.” – Galileo Galilei
“I want to know God’s thoughts; the rest are details.” – Albert Einstein
“There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the Creator, made known through Jesus.” – Blaise Pascal
“God created everything by number, weight and measure.” – Sir Isaac Newton
“All human discoveries seem to be made only for the purpose of confirming more strongly the truths, come from on high, and contained in the sacred writings.” – William Herschel
“God has to mean more to you than just where science has yet to tread.” – Neil deGrasse Tyson
