“We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangements of the books, but doesn’t know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.”
Science is the study of God’s work, and religion the study of God Himself. I’ve found that studying science strengthens my faith and studying God’s word deepens my understanding of science. As Einstein found “there is an order in the arrangement.” It should be expected that we find cohesion between science and religion; between a man and his work, so to speak. I don’t think anyone would be surprised to find an artist’s fingerprints embedded in a clay sculpture, so shouldn’t we likewise expect to find God’s fingerprints upon His sculpture, our natural world.
And what artist would not attend an exhibit of their work? Why would anyone expect God to create and dash? No, I think He is here standing back watching people view His work, listening to their impressions and interpretations, yet open to step up and answer questions when asked.
At least publicly, Albert Einstein, one of the greatest scientific minds of all time, appeared to have understood only the science of God and not the religion. I hope privately he asked the Artist a few personal questions regarding faith and religion.
Let’s not be blinded by science without recognizing that the bright light of science is God; the Way, the Truth and the Light
