Philosophy of Science 37:163-175, 1986.
William Craig is a philosopher at Westmont College who holds a Ph.D.
in philosophy (from the Univ. of Birmingham, England) and a second Ph.D. in
theology (from the Univ. of Munich, Germany). Craig provides a rigorous
response to Paul Davies's 1983 book, God and the New Physics, in which
Davies argues, "In my opinion science offers a surer path to God than
religion." From Craig's paper:
The determined naturalist cannot be compelled to ascribe a supernatural
origin to the universe on the basis of scientific evidence alone because he
can always posit some unknown or even unknowable natural cause to take care
of it. I prefer, therefore, to think of the scientific evidence as
confirmatory of a position which is reached by way of philosophical
argument or held by religious persuasion. (pgs. 172-3)
