Text Quotes
Science’s tools will never prove or disprove God’s existence  (Francis Collins Quotes) I’m a serious Christian. I take my faith seriously  (Francis Collins Quotes) I think God appreciates that we appreciate his creation  (Francis Collins Quotes) My own area of expertise is the genetics of human disease. I was fortunate to be part of the team that found the genes for cystic fibrosis, and Huntington’s disease and neurofibromatosis.  (Francis Collins Quotes) I’m a serious Christian. I take my faith seriously. I try to practice it every day of the week, not just on Sunday  (Francis Collins Quotes) I’m always feeling like I’m lacking wisdom. This reassurance that one can ask God for that and it will happen is certainly reassuring to me  (Francis Collins Quotes) I’ve never heard God speak out loud to me. That’s not an experience I have had  (Francis Collins Quotes) [Decoding the human genome sequence] is the most significant undertaking that we have mounted so far in an organized way in all of science. I believe that reading our blueprints, cataloguing our own instruction book, will be judged by history as more significant than even splitting the atom or going to the moon  (Francis Collins Quotes) There are good reasons to believe in God, including the existence of mathematical principles and order in creation. They are positive reasons, based on knowledge, rather than default assumptions based on a temporary lack of knowledge  (Francis Collins Quotes) As an atheist evolving to agnosticism, and seeking answers to whether or not belief in God is potentially rational, my life was turned upside down 35 years ago by reading C. S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity  (Francis Collins Quotes) I believe God did intend, in giving us intelligence, to give us the opportunity to investigate and appreciate the wonders of His creation. He is not threatened by our scientific adventures  (Francis Collins Quotes) I had the analysis of a million or so SNPs [single nucleotide polymorphisms] just to see what was there. That’s partly because I was writing a book about DNA and personalized medicine and I thought it would be a little bit disingenuous to talk about what could be done without actually having the experiment done on yourself  (Francis Collins Quotes) [The tests agreed] that I was at higher risk than the average person for Type 2 diabetes, which is what my lab works on. In fact, some of the things they were testing for were variants that we had discovered  (Francis Collins Quotes) The shelves of many evangelicals are full of books that point out the flaws in evolution, discuss it only as a theory, and almost imply that there’s a conspiracy here to avoid the fact that evolution is actually flawed. All of those books, unfortunately, are based upon conclusions that no reasonable biologist would now accept  (Francis Collins Quotes) It is interesting that the U.S. has this very strong proportion of the population that rejects scientific conclusions about the age of the Earth and about evolutionary relationships between species, including humans.  (Francis Collins Quotes) I believe in the literal rising of the body of Christ. It’s the cornerstone of my Christian faith  (Francis Collins Quotes) Science’s domain is the natural. If you want to understand the natural world and be sure you’re not misleading yourself, science is the way to do it.  (Francis Collins Quotes) The brain is the most complicated organ in the universe. We have learned a lot about other human organs. We know how the heart pumps and how the kidney does what it does. To a certain degree, we have read the letters of the human genome. But the brain has 100 billion neurons. Each one of those has about 10,000 connections.  (Francis Collins Quotes) I’m enormously interested to see where neuroscience can take us in understanding these complexities of the human brain and how it works, but I do think there may be limits in terms of what science can tell us about what does good and evil mean anyway, and what are those concepts about?  (Francis Collins Quotes) A cardinal principle that we must not stray from - no exceptions - is that your genetic information is your business in terms of who sees it. Nobody should be gaining access to that information without your explicit permission, and nobody should be requiring you to take a genetic test unless you decide that that’s what you want to do.  (Francis Collins Quotes) I became an atheist because, as a graduate student studying quantum physics, life seemed to be reducible to second-order differential equations. Mathematics, chemistry and physics had it all. And I didn’t see any need to go beyond that.  (Francis Collins Quotes) Growing up, I was vaguely aware of things that went on in church, because I was in the boys’ choir at the local Episcopal church. But I got the clear message that I was supposed to learn music there, and not pay too much attention to the rest of it, and I followed those instructions very carefully.  (Francis Collins Quotes) If you are in support of in vitro fertilization, then you have to recognize that human embryos are being created in excess of what can be used safely to reimplant for a pregnancy. So they’re going to end up being discarded.  (Francis Collins Quotes) When does life begin? When does the soul enter? That’s a religious question. Science is not going to be able to help with that.  (Francis Collins Quotes) It’s interesting when you read the life of Christ how much of his time he spent healing the sick. There must have been a reason for that - he was modelling for us what it is we are intended to do by following his path.  (Francis Collins Quotes) I took care of young adults with cystic fibrosis when I was in my residency training and found this to be a disease that was desperately in need of some explanation.  (Francis Collins Quotes) I don’t have a problem with the concept that miracles might occasionally occur at moments of great significance, where there is a message being transmitted to us by God Almighty. But as a scientist, I set my standards for miracles very high.  (Francis Collins Quotes) I finished up my graduate degree in quantum mechanics, but underwent a bit of a personal crisis, recognizing that I didn’t want to do that for the rest of my life. It was too abstract, too far removed from human concerns.  (Francis Collins Quotes) The God of the Bible is also the God of the genome. He can be worshipped in the cathedral or in the laboratory. His creation is majestic, awesome, intricate, and beautiful  (Francis Collins Quotes) The best diet is the one that can be sustained over the long term, combined with other healthful lifestyle behaviors  (Francis Collins Quotes)
