Notable Quote

“Do not imagine that what has occurred is a victory of science over religion. In the end science suffers too. As the pure research of the first half century, the revolutionary physics of Planck and Einstein, devolved into the technology of the second half, more and more youths turned their backs on both, the new science and the old God, and sought instead the fragile Utopias of the right place and the right person and the right emotion at the right time.

What happens when these utopias don’t work?”

    Well perhaps the ‘revolutionary physics’ of Planck and Einstein is the problem. Maybe quantum and relativity embody irrational and impossible theories and these planted the seed of what we have inherited today.
