"Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind." - Albert Einstein
In The Language of God
, Dr. Francis Collins drafts a truce between the battling armies of science
. As director of the Human Genome Project
, Collins has worked for decades at the forefront of scientific discovery, paving the way for the emergence of revolutionary breakthroughs in human genetics. However, one quality renders Collins unlikely to be among today's leading scientists in the eyes of many of his academic peers - his unshakeable faith
Over the course of his career, Collins has withstood innumerable objections against the compatibility of his scientific
sentiments, and these attacks have questioned his ability to remain loyal to each camp while simultaneously embracing the other. In The Language of God
, not only does Collins rationalize why science
are harmonious with each other, but he also demonstrates that each ideology is incomplete in the absence of the other. He argues that only together do science
enrich the human experience.
I need back-up from bible-thumping theologians/pastors/zealots/fanatics to raise an army, because there are fundamentalist and bigoted atheists here who will launch a lame counter-offensive. I need support. MoneyBoooooooomb!
