Science is an open door
light to see by which, furthermore
deals in ideas that are only called fact
when by such evidence they are backed
that denying their veracity
amounts to perversity.
Imagine a heaven, if you must
but in point of fact: we are stardust.
I admire Gould although I contest his idea that science and religion are compatible. Embryology flatly contradicts both genesis and the gospels; we are, indeed, stardust.
