Ricky Gervais and God

Interesting follow-up to Gervais’ opinion piece in the WSJ earlier this week.
Gervais’ assumption that science is humble is well-meaning, but ultimately wrong on two counts: science assumes that everything knowable is observable and repeatable, and vice versa; and scientific activity is necessarily performed by human scientists, who may or may not be humble persons themselves.

I’m intrigued by Gervais’ candidness, though; his earlier piece gives good insight into the man. Makes me wish to have a conversation with him (smile).
