I’ve observed the negativity some have as they condemn the materialistic approach of science, yet I feel ‘they’ would like nothing more than for science to ‘prove’ god exists… There are some things I could say about that but what I’d rather do is move along to the following; What if science found God (or to use a line I posted in another thread, ‘god’s toenail’), what would this mean? There is a saying about familiarity breeding contempt and if there actually was a god that science could understand in a ‘material’ way, then what would this do in relation to people holding god high upon a pedestal? What I mean is, how can God command respect if science picks him to pieces and figures out what makes him tick? Would not God be reduced in stature if ‘he’ could be explained in terms of electrons and protons? I am reminded of a quote; "There is, in fact, no reason to believe that any given natural phenomenon, however marvelous it may seem today, will remain forever inexplicable. Soon or later the laws governing the production of life itself will be discovered in the laboratory, and man may set up business as a creator on his own account. The thing, indeed, is not only conceivable; it is even highly probable." [H. L. Mencken, 1930] A penny for your thoughts.
