I’m With Ray

I stumbled upon this earlier today. I have never heard such an eloquent, and moving, description of the intersection between God and Man; between Religion and Science. Plus an  interstellar future! What’s not to love?

I have never heard a clearer description of what I personally believe.

Remember; Homo sapiens is evolving as I write this. I suspect that 50,000 years from now (if we don’t literally destroy ourselves) the differences will be as apparent as the Neanderthal were from us now. Existing anywhere other than Earth will require adaptations to a foreign environment so extreme that we will become a new species.
I’m not doing a WFB and standing athwart evolution yelling STOP. What will be will be.
I’m just noting that it won’t be done by humans as we know us.
Reference AC Clarke’s Childhood’s End.

I’ve been a fan of Mr. Bradbury for almost as long as I have been a fan of Heinlein, Asimov and Niven.
He spoke at an event for the company my father worked for, once. I was lucky enough to be in the audience for that. He spoke of the future of mankind, touched on this concept of the ‘awakened universe’.
I particularly liked his stories that treated magic like science, and that touched on the spiritual nature of exploration and existence.

This is the first time I’ve seen Mr. Bradbury, a great science fiction writer. He seems comfortable with his theology, and that’s commendable. He looks like a really handsome “Mr. Limpett”, another thinker who exists in his own reality.
