Quote of the Day

It is not that the modern scientist takes a position from the start that there are no supernatural persons. This happens to be my view, but there are good scientists who are seriously religious. Rather, the idea is to see how far one can go without supposing supernatural intervention. Only in this way can we do science, because once one invokes the supernatural, anything can be explained and no explanation can be verified. This is why the "intelligent design" ideology being promoted today is not science–it is the abdication of science.


—Steven Weinberg, from To Explain the World
