Quote of the Week - J.C. Polkinghorne


"If it is true, as I think it is, that intelligibility is the ground on which fundamental science ultimately makes its claim to be dealing with the way the world is, then it gives science a strong comradeship with theology, which is engaged in the similar, if more difficult, search for an understanding of God's ways with men." --J.C. Polkinghorne

Taken from The Way the World Is. (Grand Rapids, MI: Eerdmans Publishing Co., 1983), p. 1 1.

Some people believe the world was created by scientific means; others believe the world was created by theological means.

One can ask, "How could the world have been created without God?"

But another can ask, "How did God come into the world?"

The fact is that many scientists now believe that God created the world. But just how God came into the world remains a mystery.
