When you read the entire article (I quoted just sections of it, which I
assume that you actually did read) leaves the impression that he was not
just saying that this is what some say, but that this is the way science is
now. He promoted it is the reality in science today and that we need to
face it. I recommend the article, then you would not have to take my word
"Ratzsch, Del. 2002, "Cradled Science: Examining the Cosmos in the context
of Faith" Journal of Adventist Education, Vol 64, No. 5, p.9-12
If you cannot get it, perhaps I can scan it for you. Or if you know his
email perhaps he has it available on-line already.
