The Spiritual Scientist
Lord Kelvin, one of the world's greatest physicists, has made the following significant statement: "If you think strongly enough, you will be forced by science to believe in God." In other words, Lord Kelvin answers the question, 'Can a scientist believe in God?' in unambiguous terms: if a scientist does not believe in God, he is not a scientist at all.After commenting on all the special conditions of order and law that are so obvious in the universe, 'Science News' observed: "Contemplation of these things disturbs cosmologists because it seems as if such particular and precise conditions could hardly have arisen at random. One way to deal with the question is to say the whole thing was contrived and lay it on Divine Providence." Many scientists have begun to acknowledge what the evidence keeps insisting— intelligence.
There are many true scientists who, being in the frontlines of research in their fields, not only are keenly aware of the marvelous powers and achievements of science, but also are equally aware of its limitations - of the questions that science alone can never answer and of the marvels of creation, of wonder, and design in the universe that the atheist or agnostic is powerless to account for. After years of research and study this is what Sir Isaac had to say, "I do not know what may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been like a boy playing by the sea shore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me."
Scientists of today have begun to realize that the knowledge and ability they have is extremely limited and in fact quite insignificant. Therefore, instead of denying and challenging the existence of the Supreme Scientist, God, it should be the prime duty of all scientists to appreciate the inconceivable brain of God and His wonderful manifestations everywhere and create a worldwide spiritual awareness among people. Then there can be real peace in society.
