I was having a heavy rap with a very wise and cherished friend of mine yesterday. She in turn has a friend who is a scientist. These are her observations about him. I don’t mean to pick on scientists at all, I respect them highly and some are actually quite spirit-minded after seeing natural wonders up close. So, scientists, take this an object lesson, not a personal barb.
My friend writes:
“He is a scientist. He wants to see God as something tangible, with physical features. That’s the only thing that would satisfy him. He can’t accept that God is Intelligence (but what else could have created all this?) because you can only see the effects of Intelligence, not Intelligence Itself. You don’t see Intelligence with eyes that only register physical phenomena, but you can see Intelligence with your mind’s eye. Buy that’s not enough for a scientist who want to see it with his physical eye.
I would like to ask him “What do you hope to see when you’re looking for God? What do you want God to look like?””
