-- John Catalano + email@example.com + New York, USA 'The World of Richard Dawkins' @ http://www.world-of-dawkins.com "...If 'God' is a synonym for the deepest principles of physics, what word is left for a hypothetical being who answers prayers, intervenes to save cancer patients or helps evolution over difficult jumps, forgives sins or dies for them? If we are allowed to relabel scientific awe as a religious impulse, the case goes through on the nod. You have redefined science as religion, so it's hardly surprising if they turn out to 'converge.'" --Richard Dawkins http://www.forbes.com/asap/99/1004/235.htm
