"A common sense and satisfying interpretation of our world suggests the designing hand of a superintelligence.… There is, I shall argue, no contradiction between holding a staunch belief in supernatural design and being a creative scientist.… Just as I believe that the Book of Scripture illumines the pathway to God, so I believe that the Book of Nature, with its astonishing details … also suggests a God of purpose and a God of design. And I think my belief makes me no less a scientist."- Dr. Owen Gingerich, professor of astronomy and the History of Science at Harvard University, and senior astronomer at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory. [Owen Gingerich, “Dare a Scientist Believe in Design?” in Evidence of Purpose, ed. by John Marks Templeton (New York: Continuum, 1994), 25, 28, 32].
