“If I swallow the scientific cosmology as a whole, then not only can I not fit in religion, but I cannot even fit in science. If minds are wholly dependent on brains, and brains on biochemistry, and biochemistry (in the long run) on the meaningless flux of the atoms, I cannot understand how the thoughts of minds should have any more significance than the sound of the wind in the trees.” — C. S. Lewis
Scientism’s theory of Godless evolution says the universe is the result of the (ultimately) meaningless flux of atoms. As Lewis points out, this doesn’t work because it means the universe—all its scientific thought included—is ultimately meaningless. Thus, whenever science excludes God, it renders itself no more significant than the whining of the wind in the trees.
