A funny thing happened on the way to modern scientific materialism’s victory party.
Dyson points out that the highly improbable is actually quite probable by invoking “Littlewood’s law of miracles.”
Dyson was careful to take an open-minded approach: not fully endorsing design, yet not rejecting it either.
Wallace’s greatest “heresy” was to become, after his co-discovery of natural selection, “godfather” of the modern theory of intelligent design.
Materialists share a tendency to want to degrade human beings and our place in the cosmos.
