The introduction to this opinion piece (it’s not in the opinion section, per se, but it’s certainly not journalism) in the Washington Post states: “Andrew Parker is a respected evolutionary biologist, a professor at the Natural History Museum in London and a honorary fellow at Oxford University.” Sounds promising, right?
Although science is sound, does it have its limits beyond which we enter a realm that does not conform to mathematical formulae? Science cannot tell us whether something inexplicable — God — exists or not. Atheists’ claims cannot be substantiated — indeed, they are unscientific because atheism becomes as much a faith (in no God) as religion is itself. It carries a bias, and science does not.
*ahem* ATHEISM IS NOT A FAITH IN NO GOD. IT IS AN ABSENCE OF FAITH IN A GOD OR GODS.
Glad we could clear this up.
