FRANCIS COLLINS E A RELIGIÃO
Destaque para um dos comentários do físico Bob park na sua coluna electronica semanal "What's New":
BELIEF: FRANCIS COLLINS IS FREE TO HOLD ANY BELIEFS HE LIKES.
This week, saw the publication of his new book, "Belief: Readings on the
Reasons for Faith.” But he is now the director of the nation’s largest
science agency, having promised to set his personal quirks aside for the
time. The argument is made that the book is work he did before he became director, but that's pretty thin cover. He could wait until he steps down.
Modern science had its birth with the assertion of the Greek philosopher Thales in 585 B.C. that every observable effect has a physical cause. We should not regard any person as educated unless he understands those words, including the director of NIH.
