“Had I become a “believer”? No. Was I still what I called an “atheist”? No to that also. Then what was I?—some kind of “agnostic”? No, not that either. Because I knew that God was something real in the life of man and in the life of the mind. Only fools denied the intrinsic importance of religion and the idea of God. But—yes, this too—only fools (in my judgment) swallowed it all whole and took it all literally as objectively true.”
from What is God
"Who or what made a universe like this?-- with chance and choice, randomness and design, coiled around each other like the two serpents of the caduceus. Two opposing yet intertwined movements. Contradiction at the heart of reality"
from An Unknown World
