Uncle Screwtape Loses Another Client

Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D., is the director of the National Human Genome Research Institute at the National Institutes of Health. These are the very smart people who mapped and sequenced human DNA.

Dr. Collins is also a Christian, and has written a book called The Language of God : A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief.

As a young man he was "a pretty obnoxious atheist." And then?
Somebody pointed me towards C.S. Lewis's little book called Mere Christianity, which took all of my arguments that I thought were so airtight about the fact that faith is just irrational, and proved them totally full of holes. And in fact, turned them around the other way, and convinced me that the choice to believe is actually the most rational conclusion when you look at the evidence around you.
If this keeps up, Screwtape may find himself on the dinner menu of a more senior demon.

Thanks again, Jack.
