“If you don’t understand something, and the community of physicists don’t understand it, that means God did it? Is that how you want to play this game? If that’s how you want to invoke your evidence for God, then God is an ever-receding pocket of scientific ignorance that’s getting smaller and smaller and smaller as time moves on.”
Neil deGrasse Tyson


God does not take refuge in the gaps
where our knowledge shines no light
and our reason yields its way to guess


He is not afraid, He does not cower
alone, weak and fearful for His life
shrinking as the ever smaller darkness
shrinks at onslaught of our knowledge


He is alone the foundation of truth
He is alone the source of all we know
He is alone the giver of man’s reason


We solely know because He is


He enlivens all that shares life’s breath
He animates all that astounds our minds
He illuminates all who will truly seek


We cannot know so well His work
to have no further thought for Him
Our knowledge will never be so vast
to be more than the smallest part of all


God cowers not in darkness, is true light
for all, even who their blindness hide
in guess disguised as brilliance
