I really don't think I'm arrogant, but I do get impatient with people who don't share with me the same humility in front of the facts.
Richard Dawkins (1941 - ), Scientist (Evolutionary Biologist), Atheist, Popular Author & Public Speaker.
I know not what the world will think of my labours, but to myself it seems that I have been but as a child playing on the sea-shore; now finding some pebble rather more polished, and now some shell rather more variegated than another, while the great ocean of truth extended itself undiscovered before me.
Sir Isaac Newton (1643-1727), Scientist (physicist, mathematician, astronomer, optician, inventor), Natural Philosopher, Amateur Theologian, Christian (the orthodoxy of Newton's Christianity is under dispute by scholars, but there is no doubt that he was a theist and most probably a Christian, albeit perhaps an unorthodox one).
The upshot of this juxtaposition is that a Christian worldview, which Newton was heir to, promotes an attitude of humility and wonder in the face of God's creation, as exemplified by Newton's words, written shortly before his death; whereas atheism inculcates in its adherents an attitude of hubris - the "pride that blinds" one to the evidence of God's work in the world.
Note: A post on why I think Dawkins, who recently graced our shores with his presence, is so popular these days is in the works.
