The Business of Science


When people demand that I “scientifically prove”
the existence of God, they reveal themselves as being
ignorant of both theology and science. As Sean Carroll,
physicist and atheist activist, has said “Science isn’t in
the business of proving things”.

Satisfying the Soul

river to the sun copy

We all want to be certain, we all want proof,
but the kind of proof we tend to want —
scientifically or philosophically demonstrable proof
that would silence all doubts once and for all —
would not in the long run, I think,
answer the fearful depths of our soul at all.
