When cosmogony becomes a clash of faiths

To accept the universe as ultimate and self-created is a great act of faith, but it is a non-Christian faith. To assume the ultimacy of chance as against the ultimacy of God and His eternal decree is equally an act of faith. Both Christian and humanist begin with an act of faith but the humanist strives to persuade the Christian that this difference between them is one of faith versus knowledge, when it is a clash of faiths in which we must hold that truth and knowledge are with Christian faith.
