Modern science treats "faith" as any other concept, relies on the scientific instruments to verify the premises and the consequences. However, the "faith" is not an invention and "microscopes" are not more prudent than the naked eye. The learned "Gentlemen" do not see more than a child in this regard.
Science is in the dominion of man. As scientists, we each explore our own little corner of the universe, try to understand it better and explain our understanding to others. The universe itself is in the dominion of God. Recently in mass media there are a number of reports about the edge of the universe. It is very likely that these so called scientific discoveries will be modified a number of times before the truth is revealed. We as humans are very ill-equipped to deal with the universe as a whole. Science has brought many incredible inventions to enhance all our lives. However, it has also brought us tremendous tragedies. Here lays another domain of God -- the morality. When I start to talk about God and faith with my scientist friends, one very common reaction is "show me the existence of God." Science can not determine the existence of God, because scientific knowledge is only a small part of the university.
Here is another poem of Emily Dickinson which is given a title of "The Saints' Rest" by Thomas Higginson,
Of tribulation, these are they,
Denoted by the white;
The spangled gowns, a lesser rank
Of victors designate.
All these did conquer; but the ones
Who overcome most times,
Wear nothing commoner than snow,
No ornaments but palms.
"Surrender" is a sort unknown
On this superior soil;
"Defeat" an outgrown anguish,
Remembered as the mile
Our painting ankle barely passed
When night devoured the road;
But we stood whispering in the house,
And all we said, was "Saved!" - Emily Dickinson
Science is a fine invention!
This poem like the first one about "faith" both bring to mind of child's play. Many places in the Bible, Jesus spoke of entering the house of the Lord as a child. Like a child who does not doubt, we should expunge all the doubts about God. Only than, can we enter the house of Lord and whisper "Saved!"
