Mind the Gap Between Science and Religion

Mind the Gap Between Science and Religion
Posted By Sabine Hossenfelder on Sep 16, 2019
''Believing in an Omnipotent Programmer is not scienceó
itís tech-bro monotheism.''
'' . . .faith in beautiful math has become pervasive
in the community. And thatís despite the fact that
relying on beauty as a guide to new natural laws
has historically worked badly: The mechanical
clockwork universe was once considered beautiful.
So were circular planetary orbits, and an eternally
unchanging universe.
All of which, it turns out, is wrong.''

Scientists should respect the limits of their discipline
