today they said

"The Big Bang cries out for a divine explanation. It forces the conclusion that nature had a definite beginning. I cannot see how nature could have created itself. Only a supernatural force that is outside of space and time could have done that."
- Francis Collins, scientist who mapped what he and other scientists consider to be the biogenetic building block of human life, which they style the deoxyribonucleic molecule or DNA.

"The best data we have concerning the Big Bang are exactly what I would have predicted had I nothing to go on but the five books of Moses, the Psalms, the Bible as a whole."
- Arno Penzias, who won the Nobel Prize for his observation of background microwave radiation in the night sky.

"I am angry when atheists identify me as one of their number. I deserve to be called a theist."
- Albert Einstein

"The most beautiful system of the sun, planet, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and domination of an intelligent and powerful being."
- Isaac Newton in the Principia Mathematica

"FIRE. God of Abraham, God of Isaac, God of Jacob, not of the philosophers and scholars. Certainty. Certainty. Feeling. Joy. Peace."
- Blaise Pascal

"Belief in God is a superstition akin to toadstool worship."
- Donald Clarke in the Irish Times
