Science: Defender of the Anthropocentric Faith … Again

vitruvian_man3.jpg“All the evidence available in the biological sciences supports the core proposition of traditional natural theology–that the cosmos is a specially designed whole with life and mankind as its fundamental goal and purpose, a whole in which all facets of reality, from the size of galaxies to the thermal capacity of water, have their meaning and explanation in this central fact … As I hope the evidence presented in this book has shown, science, which has been for centuries the great ally of atheism and skepticism, has become at last, in these final days of the second millenium, what Newton and many of its early advocates had so fervently wished–the “defender of the anthropocentric faith.” (Michael Denton, Nature’s Destiny: How the Laws of Biology Reveal Purpose in the Universe., Free Press, 1998, p. 389.)
