On faith and rocket-boots.

howardtayler (always a good read) recently posted a well-written explanation of how he reconciles his faith with science, without needing Creationism, Intelligent Design, or anything else of the sort. The whole thing is worth reading, especially for those uncertain on the matter, but I also like how he concludes it all:

I don't want to see science used to discredit religion, because that will make people live LESS happily, and I don't want to see religion used to discredit science, because that will further delay the delivery of my flying car. If this simple dichotomy can be honestly and openly explained to our children, they can embrace the apparent paradox, and get on with the important things in life: being happy, and figuring out how to build me a jetpack. It's 2005, for heaven's sake. I was supposed to have a silica farm on the moon twenty years ago, and I can't even get my replicator-bots onto the roof of the house.
