Alpher, Bethe, and Gamow ... I met Mark Twain
more deeply by reading his books than I ever met many persons with whom I have worked. You are even better acquainted with a variety of
wonderful and quite human beings.
Nice atheists can always say, "God doesn't need theology, so probably is an atheist." But the natural world's living creatures have been groping toward survival all these millions of years, and some theology has interested some of our best mathematicians and scientists...for theology has been our groping too. How do you know it's not part of our pulse of higher life? The brain is not all neurons, and thinking may not be all nuts and bolts. Even the universe may not be all nuts and bolts.
You invoke an atheist paradigm but don't really believe it . . . And imply humility is a great virtue. It's all true, but it's not the only truth. Many fine thoughts seem somehow lost in time because it's unclear what to do with them. However, if thoughts can create a national sports system with its legends, its farm system, code of ethics, a complex of media deals, etc. then, surely (Hi, Shirley) we can assemble an honest God -- the noblest work of Man. An honest Mankind is the noblest work of God...yes, very circular.
