← Falling from Faith: When Pastors Stop Believing

'No adult has an answer to life's ultimate questions that cannot be challenged, but some abandon their faith in the illusion that the struggle can be avoided, or that certainty is available somewhere else. Others confuse the descriptive power of science with explanatory power. Science is a powerful tool and it can account for the causal associations between the natural forces at work in our world. But it is limited in its ability to explain why those forces exist or why they necessarily interact the way they do.'

This was the paragraph that did it for me. I was going to go through it, line by line, but I really can't be bothered.

88 words of utter bollocks to say 'That's magic, folks!'
