Some articles on science and religion

The Jesuit website Thinking Faith has an interesting series of articles by Guy Consolmagno SJ of the Vatican Observatory. So far they have published ‘Astronomy, God and the Search for Elegance’, ‘God and the Mystery of the Universe’ and ‘Couldn’t God have designed a gentler universe?’ Definitely worth reading.

In addition to being a professional astronomer and a theologian, Brother Guy is something of a science fiction fan. I met him during the 2005 Worldcon in Glasgow, where he was appearing on one or two of the panel discussions.

Update (9 May): The fourth and final article in the series (‘Heaven or Heat Death?’) has just been posted on the site.
