“...supernatural explanations always mean the end of inquiry: that’s the way God wants it, end of story. Science, on the other hand, is never satisfied: our studies of the universe will continue until humans go extinct.”
Jerry A. Coyne, Why Evolution Is True

“These mysteries about how we evolved should not distract us from the indisputable fact that we did evolve.”
Jerry A. Coyne, Why Evolution Is True

“Now, science cannot completely exclude the possibility of supernatural explanation. It is possible - though very unlikely - that our whole world is controlled by elves.”
Jerry A. Coyne, Why Evolution Is True
