I just love this, a wonderful chat between two of my favorite scientists, a world-class biologist and the man referred to as “the sexiest astrophysicist alive.”
“It doesn’t seem to me that this fantastically marvelous universe, this tremendous range of time and space and different kinds of animals, and all the different planets, and all these atoms with all their motions, and so on, all this complicated thing can merely be a stage so that God can watch human beings struggle for good and evil — which is the view that religion has. The stage is too big for the drama.”
Prepare to have your mind blown, on this, possibly the deepest of unanswered questions of science.
