Sunday Quote: Robert Jastrow on Faith and Reason

"For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries."

- Robert Jastrow

(God and the Astronomers, W.W. Norton, New York, 1978, p. 116)
