The exhilarating romance of science

The romance of science is no less absorbing than the mystical pursuits of truth. But both are largely misunderstood in their pop-versions. Anyone who shuts his eyes on the exhilarating insights of science because of his/her religious prejudice does no credit either to himself or to the essence of religion. You can not claim on the one hand that God's truths are un-knowable and then proceed to declare that you know enough about these to reject the findings of those opposed to your view of reality. Better to be a shy non-believer than chest-thumping fanatic.
