“My debts are large, my failures great, my shame secret and heavy; yet I come to ask for my good, I quake in fear lest my prayer be granted.”
(Nobel Laureate Literature)
“There is a Divine Providence over and above the materialistic happenings of biological evolution.” ~ Sir John Eccles (NOBEL Laureate in MEDICINE & PHYSIOLOGY)
“It pains me as much as it did Kelvin ‘to hear crudely atheistic views expressed by men who have never known the deeper side of existence.’ Let me, then, henceforth use the word God to describe that which is behind the mystery of existence and that which gives meaning to it. I think you will not misunderstand me, then, when I say that I have never known a thinking man who did not believe in God.” ~Robert Millikan (NOBEL Prize in PHYSICS)

“We’re just working with the tools God gave us. …There’s no reason that science and religion have to operate in an adversarial relationship. Both come from the same source, the only source of truth — the Creator.” ~Joseph Murray (NOBEL Prize in MEDICINE & PHYSIOLOGY)
“I strongly believe in the existence of God, based on intuition, observations, logic, and also scientific knowledge.” ~Charles Townes (NOBEL Laureate in PHYSICS)
“I think only an idiot can be an atheist. We must admit that there exists an incomprehensible power or force with limitless foresight and knowledge that started the whole universe going in the first place.” ~ Christian Anfinsen (NOBEL Laureate in CHEMISTRY)

“I heard what was said of the universe,

“I was there when Abbe Georges Lemaître first proposed this [Big Bang] theory... There is no rational reason to doubt that the universe has existed indefinitely, for an infinite time... It is only myth that attempts to say how the universe came to be, either four thousand or twenty billion years ago.”
(Expressing his belief that the Big Bang is a myth devised to explain creation. He said he heard Lemaître (who was, at the time both a member of the Catholic hierarchy and an accomplished scientist) say in private that this theory was a way to reconcile science with St. Thomas Aquinas’ theological dictum of creatio ex nihilo—creation out of nothing.)
