Catholics/No refuge from the mysteries of nature

Advertisement


Question
Stephen Jay Gould has stated "There is no refuge from the mysteries of nature". What are your feelings on this statement?

Answer
I have no comment since I do not understand the context of the statement.  
If he is saying that humans cannot understand the universe, he is wrong -- I have given you opinions and conclusions of many experts, scientists included, who disagree.
As the bell-curve indicates, there are fringe opinions.
Again, best wishes Charles.
