Getting Rid of God Isn’t So Easy

Quote of the day:

FIRST-PERSON: Can science rule out God?

. . .

“Most scientists … suspect that the search for ultimate explanations eventually terminates in some final theory of the world, along with the phrase ‘and that’s just how it is.’” When Christians look at the unanswerable questions of creation, refer to the Creator God, and say, “That’s just how it is,” scientists scoff. When scientists look at the unanswerable questions of creation, refer to a theory that cannot answer those same questions, and say, “That’s just how it is,” that is great science. The fact is that scientists know that some questions, such as the origin of matter, energy or the laws of physics cannot be answered by science and must succumb to the old parents’ final answer, “Because we say so!” That also means that some scientists, like Carroll, are willing to abandon true science and its methods in order to deny God and to avoid the fact that science cannot answer ultimate questions.
