Abstract

During a lunchroom discussion at work one of my colleagues once remarked, 'Frankly, I find it astonishing in our modern society that a single, intelligent, educated person still exists who believes in the supernatural, in an interventionist God'.

For those of us who have a career in science or technology, such questions seem to perpetually lurk below the surface, especially so in the West where our societies benefit most visibly from the fruits of scientific and technological progress, yet remain 'uncomfortably haunted by the memory of religion' (Williams 2009).
