Response to Dawkins

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.

Sheila Durbin
