A Non-Scientist’s Response to Dawkins and Others
Hear our modern simplifiers,
Striving hard to make it plain,
Ethics springs from evolution,
Mind itself is only brain.
In this hour when science triumphs –
Electronic wizardry –
What’s become of hope and purpose
And the faith that sets us free?
I am ignorant of science;
Others must such answers give,
Yet the heart itself makes answer;
“Love, for only thus you live”.
Jesus Christ, who came, revealing
God as wisdom, love and power,
Open minds and hearts to see You.
Come to help us in this hour.
