Karl W. Giberson
George Bailey's Wonderful Universes
Unfortunately Greene passes silently over this option, despite its ubiquity in the contemporary discussion and, most likely, in the minds of many of his readers. The theistic option, of course, intrudes from outside science and is something of a "god of the gaps," but the belief that God created our wonderful universe is hardly an indefensible claim and should be a part of such discussions.
Karl W. Giberson is professor of physics at Eastern Nazarene College and director of the Forum on Faith and Science at Gordon College. With Francis S. Collins, he is the author of The Language of Science and Faith (InterVarsity). His biography of John Polkinghorne is forthcoming. And with Randall J. Stephens, he has written The Anointed: Evangelical Truth in a Secular Age, to be published by Harvard University Press this fall.
