Voices: Understanding Science

“Understanding science doesn’t make God smaller. It allows us to see his creative activity in more detail.” — attributed to Russell Cowburn

I saw this quote on facebook, I haven’t been able to track it down officially, but I did find that Russell Cowburn is Professor of Physics at the Cavendish Laboratory, the University of Cambridge. [1]

Whether or not he said it—it is profoundly true.
