God: Why Science Exists

As I was reading the introduction to The Shack by William P. Young, this thought about those atheists and agnostics who have a narrow but abosolute faith in Science crossed my mind. I thought I'd share...

It is this: There would be no need for science if there were not an unlimited number of undiscovered, unexplained, unknown, and seemingly unknowable things for science to prove or disprove. God fits in the category of things that science hasn't figured out. If it ever did, there would be no need for science. In the meantime, it would serve devotees of science well to accept the fact that God exists. Some scientists know him; some consider him unknowable. But to assert he does not exist is foolish - and unscientific.
