At Odds




Researchers seeking solutions can’t say,

“Things are the way they are because of God.”

From Spirit, scientists must shy away

or risk their labors be seen as slipshod.

The fraction of them considered devout

must keep their studies apart from belief,

not daring to proselytize about

what brings their natures comfort and relief.


Faith remains outside their explanations,

despite convictions which may be affirmed.

No matter what profound implications,

their answers must be physically termed.


They want to know God’s thoughts, yet they resist

even acknowledging God could exist.
