A very interesting read, profound insight from a Christian Br who is also a leading Astronomer and scientist.
Just a simple thanks for this series of lectures.
As a child in the 1950s I used to sneak out onto our front veranda late at night and into the early mornings and lay down on my back and look at the universe. I was lucky enough to live out in the country, in the dark.
