Much of Professor Hellers career has been dedicated to reconciling the known scientific world with the unknowable dimensions of God.... In doing so, he has argued against a God of the gaps strategy for relating science and religion, a view that uses God to explain what science cannot.... Professor Heller said he believed, for example, that the religious objection to teaching evolution is one of the greatest misunderstandings because it introduces a contradiction or opposition between God and chance.
It seems to me that the entire universe exists in a tension between that which does not change (God's Will and Word) and that which does (i.e., "chance"). Ultimately, God is not "of the gaps"; He is the foundation of everything that exists, the ultimate source of the order of the changeable things....
I'm thrilled that Professor Heller has been honored with the Templeton Prize.
Thanks so much for the ping to this excellent article TXnMA, and to Iowahawk for posting it!
