Intelligent design

These are the two front epigraphs for my book Skeptics and True Believers:

To invoke God as a blanket explanation of the unexplained is to make God the friend of ignorance. If God is to be found, it must surely be through what we discover about the world, not what we fail to discover.

     -- Paul Davies, physicist

When it's over, I want to say: all my life
I was a bride married to amazement.
I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.

     -- Mary Oliver, poet
