This article … 83054.html reminded me of his statement.

    People are falling asleep amid their own delusions.  Daydreaming of tomorrow and how this makes them are wiser than they were yesterday.  Science can provide how but is incapable of supplying a why.  As long as people can find whys in the wisdom of our ancestors, they can use those scripts to wake from there slumber. 

    Science in itself is independent of reflective meaning.  Theology is its necessary counterpart.  Science becomes religion if it gives the scientist meaning. 

    proof is for mathematicians and lawyers, science provides evidence without absolute certainty.

    A scientist needs to be objective.  (s)he will loose objectivity if their findings are reflective of their held absolute beliefs. 

    Absolutes are necessary as a basic foot hold on reality.

    No.  There are still a cornucopia of religious fundamentalists, and they could ultimately ignite another world war.
