Benedict said that some scientific theories were "mind limiting" because "they only arrive at a certain point ... and do not manage to explain the ultimate sense of reality."

The "point" that science has arrived at is capable of stretching our sense of vastness and majesty beyond its limits. Benedict, on the other hand, has invested all his intellectual capital in a silly little idea that involves sky fairies and funny hats. No wonder he's a bitter old man.
