Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder at what makes the universe exist. Be curious. (Stephen Hawking, late theoretical physicist)

Hawking claimed to be an atheist, yet his suggestion sounds a bit like a person of faith who looks to the heavens and sees the hand of God in it all. His encouragement to be curious and ponder what is all around us is not just good advice for the scientist who looks for explanations about reality; it might open up more than scientific knowledge. It might lead to faith.

The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. (Psalm 19:1)
