Science, Technology & Religion

A creation story

I’ve been reading (and reading) about different people’s models or descriptions of science-religion interaction over the past few months. In the last week I was following up some of Willem B. Drees’ work and came across this poetic creation story he wrote to introduce his book Creation: From Nothing Until Now. It ends like this,

In us
    our heritage,
    matter,
    information,
    and a box
    full of stories.
Between
    hope and fear
    our neighbors
    life
    here on Earth,
between
    hope and fear
    the great project
    of thought
    and compassion
on a road
    of freedom.

The full text is here: A creation story.
I like the idea of humans comprising, in part, stories.
