You have to chuckle at people who insist that, in opposition to theology, scientific endeavors are ‘objective and dispassionate’. As Stephen Charnock put it so brilliantly, centuries ago,
There is more of belief than reason in the world; all instructors and masters in sciences and arts require first a belief in their disciples, and a resignation of their understandings and wills to them. And it is the wisdom of God to require that of man, which his own reason makes him submit to another, which is his fellow-creature. He therefore that quarrels with the condition of faith must quarrel with all the world, since belief is the beginning of all knowledge; indeed, and most of the knowledge in the world may rather come under the title of belief than of knowledge.
Science requires acceptance of its system just as surely as theology does. Don’t allow it to fool you into thinking otherwise.
