The existence of a world without God seems to me less absurd
than the presence of a God, existing in all his perfection, creating an
imperfect man in order to make him run the risk of Hell - Armand Salacrou.
I recall the story of the philosopher and the theologian.
The two were engaged in disputation and the theologian used the old quip about
a philosopher resembling a blind man, in a dark room, looking for a black cat
-- which wasn't there. "That may be," said the philosopher: "but
a theologian would have found it." - Julian Huxley
If we are going to teach "creation scince"...as an
alternative to evolution, then we should also teach the stork theory as an
alternative to biological reproduction - Judith Hayes
No miracle has ever taken place under conditions which
science can accept. Experience shows, without exception, that miracles occur
only in times and in countries in which miracles are believed in, and in the
presence of persons who are disposed to believe them - Ernest Renan
