Science and Religion

This page is still largely in progress.

For a while, this is just a place where I collect interesting material—mainly quotations—on the issue.

  • If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to. (Dorothy Parker)

[...] in its current form, religion will continue to dominate over science. Because scientists don’t have traditions, because science is all about competition and not about belonging, because you are not accepted simply by declaring your willingness of being part, because we don’t take care of our group members, because we offer no advice in hard times and no guidance for those in trouble. Because the scientific enterprise as it is today does not take care of these most human needs. And as long as we don’t make the scientific enterprise a more welcoming place, people will continue instead to turn to religion for comfort and a place of belonging.

This man is the "god" of virtually any universe he creates. And in those virtual universes, they debate his existence.
