That is exactly right Anony mous. I was thinking the same thing about Newton. He opted out of doing science a few times and attributed things he couldn't figure out to god.
Why all the planets revolve on the same plane stumped him for example. It was at these points that he stopped doing science.
Truth Seeker - As I said a few times there are some excellent scientists who are theists. As long as they don't resort to, "god-did-it" it's not a problem.
If they claim inspiration for their discoveries that's fine. Nothing says a scientist can't be superstitious, we are only ever partially rational. That is why the scientific method is designed to eradicate the effects of subjective bias from the data.
I could explain this a thousand times but SBF is determined not to get it as usual.
Perhaps even Darwin himself who was not above suggesting that God created a few primitive life forms and evolution took over for there.
He did get close to suggesting exactly that.
“There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.”
