David Berlinski on the Limitation of Science

“A great many men and women have a dull, hurt, angry sense of being oppressed by the sciences. They are frustrated by endless scientific boasting. They suspect that the scientific community holds them in contempt. They are right to feel this way.”  - The Devil's Delusion by David Berlinski

David Berlinski is not an Orthodox Christian.  He is not an advocate for any religion, but addresses the proper limitation of science and the contemporary failure of scientists to recognize the limitation of science and to make the proper distinction between science and the philosophy of science.
