> > Reality, in fact, is usually something you could not have guessed. That is one of the reasons i believe Christianity. It is a religion you could not have guessed. If it offered us just the kind of universe we hade always expected, I should feel we were making it up. But, in fact, it is not the sort of thing anyone would have made up. It has just that queer twist about it that real things have.

It doesn't seem to make sense until you take into consideration dark matter. 20 years ago, nobody would have thought to make that story up, even though Einstein got it right where he thought he had blundered. I enjoy both the concrete and the mysterious. However, at the moment, the only mystery to me lies in creation, and man's vain attempt to explain why it occurred at all.

The Christian and the Materialist hold different beliefs about the universe. They can't both be right. The one who is wrong will act in a way which simply doesn't fit the real universe. Consequently, with the best will in the world, he will be helping his fellow creatures to their destruction.
