Evolution Sunday Quote of the Day (Dr. Isis) February 15, 2009
“As a scientist I conduct research the same way everyone else does (or, so I assume), guided by the scientific method. I attempt to interpret my data using my current knowledge of physiology, and I don’t think I have ever turned to I Thessalonians for information on endothelial-mediated vasodilation. Besides, everyone knows that all of the hot cardiovascular stuff is in I Corinthians.

I believe it is terrible hubris to say that there must be a God because there are things that I cannot understand or that appear mystical.
