These scientists are brilliant people, but generally, their ultimate objective is to disprove God. This is impossible, of course, but they are being driven mad by the fact that what they see before themselves on a microscopic level seems miraculous, like a “blind watchmaker” built it. If they all circle the wagons, they may convince *themselves* that they have discovered a secular Alpha and Omega. No independent thinker will buy it, but this just proves that a mathematical genius can be an ordinary rube on the common sense plane. Bob

That is true of some, but I would not categorize all scientists that way. Especially in the area of physics. Most, with a few notable (and noisy) exceptions, understand that science neither proves nor disproves God. That is not what science is for.

Scientists in the hard sciences don't have nearly as much doubt about God than those in softer ones like sociology. Old-earth creationist and scientist Hugh Ross, of Reasons to Believe
mentioned, IIRC, that when an atheist was needed to participate in a debate at his university they usually had to go to the philosophy department; the astrophysics and astronomy departments were useless.
