There's Reason

Here's a great little essay on evolutionary microbiology in National Review's Corner. I agree with the following paragraph:

There is a reason why devout Christians are easier to find in the hard sciences than in the humanities and social sciences. Many of the great discoveries in evolutionary biology—the theory of molecular co-evolution, for example—were made by scientists who see no contradiction in simultaneously exalting the ethical doctrines of their faith, and discovering the mechanistic contribution that population genetics makes to the development of those doctrines. They see God's design in the wonders of the universe — everywhere and in everything.
