Pierre Teilhard de Chardin on science and Christ:

Science alone cannot discover Christ. But Christ satisfies the yearnings that are born in our hearts in the school of science… Science will, in all probability, be increasingly impregnated by mysticism.

Beholding the distant galaxies as imaged by the Hubble Telescope, I can’t imagine the Jesuit priest and paleontologist would change his mind.
