August 29th in the Monday edition of the USA Today, Dean Nelson wrote a Monday Focus article titled “Why certainty about God is overrated.” The substance of the article was a review of physicist John Polkinghorne, the man who discovered the existence of quarks and gluons, and his faith and doubt. Polkinghorne is a believer in spite of being a world renowned scientist. Moreover, Polkinghorne admits to doubts both in his science and in his faith. But doubt does not diminish faith in either. Neither quarks nor God can be seen but there is sufficient reason to believe in both. It is not a sin to doubt. Doubt questions. Doubt seeks answers. But as Polkinghorne says, “It’s not a knock-down argument, but it’s strong enough to bet my life on it.” This is Just-A-Minute
