Counterpoints: Steven Weinberg vs. James Tour on Science

Physicist Steven Weinberg- "One of the great achievements of science has been, if not to make it impossible for intelligent people to be religious, then at least to make it possible for them not to be religious."1

Nanoscientist James Tour- "Only a rookie who knows nothing about science would say science takes away from faith.  If you really study science, it will bring you closer to God."2

Courage and Godspeed,

Absolutely, the more you know about TRUE science the more you know that God exists and that He rewards those who believe in Him.
