We have a commitment to materialism…

[Harvard geneticist Richard] Lewontin freely admits that science has its own problems. It has created many of our social problems (like ecological disasters), and many scientific theories are no more than “unsubstantiated just-so stories.” Nevertheless, “in the struggle between science and the supernatural,” we “take the side of science.” Why? “Because we have a prior commitment to materialism.”

Charles Colson and Nancy Pearcey, from How Now Shall We Live?, p. 96
