-- James Ph. Kotsybar
A scientist trusts in whathas been proved
Assertions of faith willleave him unmoved
until they have achievedvalidation.
Religious beliefs often leavehim cold
and skeptical of professedprophecies
based mostly on hearsay andtales twice-told,
not carefully testedhypotheses.
This doesn’t make him anatheist, though.
He’s more like aninvestigative sleuth
who seldom proclaims things hedoesn’t know,
since he’s a stalwart apostleof truth.
He’ll all too gladly applyhis method,
should God allow Himself tobe tested.
