Are those your words or a quotation from somewhere?

Either way -- very useful summary. I'd like to try to work in
Polkinghorne's concept of verisimilitude with it, along with the saying
""It has become clear that science is not in contact with ultimate
reality; that at best it describes the waves and not he water of
reality." I don't know where that one came from either.
