I found this article just a few moments ago:
I just found it ironic that two of those men who are spoken of in glowing words such as this --
"Atheists are indebted to them for their courage and wonderful discoveries. Three men though, stand out as truly world changing."
-- were also devout Christians who considered their exploration into science and exploration into God.
This is something that most people don't realize. The scientific method comes from a long tradition of Christians (and, to be honest, people of other religions) compiling data about the world to learn about God!
Ah well. It's much easier to ignore the truth in seeking facts, if the truth doesn't support the facts you want to see.
