    God plays dice with the universe

    is simple anthropomorphizing taken to a Galactic scale.

    Our puny human Gods are but a speck before the grandeur of countless galaxies of stars extending forever.

    You want wonder and awe?  Tremble before a universe that created itself...and life that arose by itself, without direction, from that Chaos.

    don't always believe what you think

    •  That's a reference to Einstein, of course (3+ / 0-)

      He struggled with the implications of quantum mechanics, saying, "God does not play dice with the universe". Then he wrote his most referenced paper that predicted all the bizarre consequences of quantum mechanics.

      And proved himself gloriously wrong.

      look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening.
