A couple of months ago on Listen I quoted the agnostic Robert Jastrow as follows:
“The scientist has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak. As he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.”
There were some interesting responses to this quotation and the subsequent discussion about creationism and Intelligent Design that I would like to spend this week addressing. I hope you’ll stay tuned, and feel free to comment on the issues at hand.
(On second thought, it might take longer than a week!)
