‘Some of us seem to imagine that because we understand much, we should be able to understand everything, and that science will continue pulling up the blinds, exposing to the light more and more of the dark room that is our ignorance. But this is a faith one need not be embarrassed to decline. Despite all our knowledge about ourselves and the universe we inhabit, much more is unknown than is known; our ignorance drowns our knowledge…The world is large, and our minds are small, so the latter cannot always contain the former. We cannot but expect there to be mysteries – permanent mysteries – on every side.’
Dale C Allison Jr., The Luminous Dusk, p.174.
