Our own Fr. Coyne was mentioned in the NYTimes in the article “Intellectuals on a Mission”:
“George V. Coyne — an astronomer, Jesuit priest and former director of the Vatican Observatory, now a professor of religion at Le Moyne College in Syracuse — wrote in a 2000 book on religion and the evolution of life, for example, that the success of modern science has trapped many of us into thinking of God as explanation, thus the notion of finding the ‘mind of God’ as the ultimate goal.”
“But he wrote, ‘We know from Scripture and from tradition that God revealed himself as one who pours out himself in love and not as one who explains things.’ God, he goes on, is primarily love: ‘Even if we discover the “Mind of God,” we will not have necessarily found God.’”
