Over the past few centuries, science can be said to have gradually chipped away at the traditional grounds for believing in God. Much of what once seemed mysteriousthe existence of humanity, the life-bearing perfection of Earth, the workings of the universecan now be explained by biology, astronomy, physics and other domains of science.
Although cosmic mysteries remain, Sean Carroll, a theoretical cosmologist at the California Institute of Technology, says there's good reason to think science will ultimately arrive at a complete understanding of the universe that leaves no grounds for God whatsoever.
Another role for God is as a raison d'être for the universe. Even if cosmologists manage to explain how the universe began, and why it seems so fine-tuned for life, the question might remain why there is something as opposed to nothing. To many people, the answer to the question is God. According to Carroll, this answer pales under scrutiny. There can be no answer to such a question, he says.

Duh, no. We are physical and as such can never perform metaphysical experiments. There’s this principle called “finite but unbounded,” and it is used to pretend nothing is outside the universe. It is nonsense.
I have reasons to believe there is a God.
Some “theoretical cosmetologist” at some fancy “institute” has a problem with God? So?
I remember someone saying that we use science as a way to understand the makings of God.
Science will have the answer sooner rather than later: http://www.patburt.com/
god created evolution. problem solved
Always entertaining to read metaphysical pronouncements from people who have no acquaintance with metaphysics.
No, not quite.
Besides, God does not need evolution, which frankly has never been proven at any time.
From their pontifications, it also seems that their knowledge of observable physics is somewhat lacking.
They tried that back in 1996.
Once again a journalist cherry picks a particular scientist to support the leftist agenda.
it works for me
That’s backwards. It’s the other way around. Science will “prove” the probability/reality of God. Religion and science eventually end up at the same place.
“god created evolution. problem solved”
Scientist I know are fine with this.
Creationist may crucify you for suggesting it.
Lawrence Krauss gives a talk on our current picture of the universe, how it will end, and how it could have come from nothing. Krauss is the author of many bestselling books on Physics and Cosmology, including “The Physics of Star Trek.”
God is Truth.
If these scientists really are searching for truth, as opposed to searching for a world without God, they will find God.
If they really are searching for truth, they will have no choice but to find God.
They have been saying this since the time of David.
The fool says in his heart, God does not exist.
They are corrupt; they do vile deeds.
There is no one who does good.
Silly scientist, how can you think you can learn everything when with every new discovery, you learn about even more things that you don’t know and never thought of before.
I’ve watched that before. How can the vacuum (”nothing”) be the most massive and energetic structure in the Universe, yet its existence taken for granted when one of these blowhards says the Universe came from nothing?
God will be around long after Carroll is forgotten.
Perhaps God will rule out science, someday, and say, You just gotta have faith.
Stick around folks. It’s going to get very interesting.
But first we have to get rid of the Carbon Dioxide voodo scientists.
At least we have the plants on our side. They already have an organization, the EPA = Earth Plants Association.
