Dear Bill,

I think this point is often mentioned by C.S. Lewis, the issue of
surrendering our will to God. We must all do that--now while alive rather
than when dead and have no choice of the consequences. "Thy will be done, on
earth as it is on heaven." Not my will, but thy will! Of course, those
scientists who are rebellious may not be in a position to honestly search
for the truth.

Take care,
