“If you dont understand something, and the community of physicists dont understand it, that means God did it? Is that how you want to play this game? If thats how you want to invoke your evidence for God, then God is an ever-receding pocket of scientific ignorance thats 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 His ever smaller darkness

shrinks at onslaught of our light


He is alone the foundation of truth

He is alone the source of all we know

He is alone the giver of mans reason


We solely know because He is


He enlivens all that shares lifes 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 smallest part of His


God cowers not in darkness, is true light

for all, even who their blindness hide

in guess disguised as brilliance


God does not take Refuge
