This Shamanism

Sharing Options

“We see that science, rightly understood, is a glorious thing . . . The problem arises with all the bad information that we think is science, such as junk pop science or politicized science. Scientists who do not acknowledge a God with final ultimate knowledge of every created thing have a problem . . . when scientists refuse to acknowledge an omniscient Creator God, their pretensions to actual knowledge become funnier and funnier. This is because we all instinctively know that someone around here must be the omniscient one. If we have denied that God can be that one, then someone else must take on the mantle. In our society, this priestcraft, this shamanism, is performed with a white lab coat.”
