Deserve An Explanation Quotes

Happy the creators of pessimistic systems! Besides taking refuge in the fact of having made something, they can exult in their explanation of universal suffering, and include themselves in it. I dont complain about the world. I dont protest in the name of the universe. Im not a pessimist. I suffer and complain, but I dont know if suffering is the norm, nor do I know if its human to suffer. Why should I care to know? I suffer, without knowing if I deserve to. (A hunted doe.) Im not a pessimist. Im sad.
— Fernando Pessoa —

In thinking about these questions I have been stimulated by criticisms of the prevailing scientific world picture ... by the defenders of intelligent design. Even though writers like Michael Behe and Stephen C. Meyer are motivated at least in part by their religious beliefs, the empirical arguments they offer against the likelihood that the origin of life and its evolutionary history can be fully explained by physics and chemistry are of great interest in themselves. Another skeptic, David Berlinski, has brought out these problems vividly without reference to the design inference. Even if one is not drawn to the alternative of an explanation by the actions of a designer, the problems that these iconoclasts pose for the orthodox scientific consensus should be taken seriously. They do not deserve the scorn with which they are commonly met. It is manifestly unfair.

— Thomas Nagel
