skepticism

“I don’t believe in God. I believe science can explain these miracles.”

is(n’t) this a vacuous statement?

perhaps that miracle could be explained by science, perhaps it just so happened coincidentally that this random particle collided with that other random particle, causing such and such phenomenon; it was just randomness.

but just because it is possible to produce a scientific explanation for a rare phenomenon, doesn’t make it’s occurrence any more probable. so yes, it could have just been random. but who would put their faith in sheer randomness? not least when there is a more intellectually satisfying, historically verifiable, joy-inducing, and beautiful solution to the problem.

science reveals and elucidates more about the mysteries of God. but science doesn’t offer an explanation. it offers you a choice: randomness, or design?
