Helping out god

Paul O’Donoghue of the Irish Skeptics Society had a good article in yesterday’s Irish Times.

The piece considered whether science should help out god in correcting evolutionary flaws in humans.

Some quotes:

On the design of the human body:

In a world preoccupied with environmental issues one might wonder who in his right mind would construct two waste-disposal units right next to a recreational area?

Woody Allen:

If it turns out that there is a god, I don’t think that he’s evil. But the worse you can say is that basically he’s an underachiever:

More than any other time in history, mankind is at a crossroads. One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness, the other, to total extinction.

Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.

One thought on “Helping out god”

  1. At the center of our being is a point of nothingness which is untouched by illusion, a point of pure truth, a point or spark which belongs entirely to God, which is never at our disposal, from which God disposes of our live, which is inaccessable to the fantasies of our own mind or the brutalities of our own will. This little point of nothingness and of absolute poverty is the pure glory of God in us.

    Thomas Merton (1915 – 1968)
