Want to Worship the "God" of Science? Here's Your Temple

By Melissa Lafsky | September 10, 2008 5:05 pm

The line between extreme Christianity and extreme atheism has been narrowing, while the debate rages over whether or not one can be—or should be— turned into another. But should those who bow before the altar of science have a physical space to practice their beliefs?

Enter conceptual artist Jonathon Keats (relationship to the other John Keats unknown) who has created the “Atheon,” a new installation at the Judah L. Magnes Museum in Berkeley. The project involves posting NASA images of the universe’s early years in the 14-foot-high cathedral-style windows on the second floor, so passersby can view them while listening to an accompanying song on their cell phones. According to the museum’s Web site, Keats’s work is meant to “call[] forth the fusion of science and religion by building a temple for scientific worship.” We can’t wait to see what Karl and P.Z. have to say about this one.

  40. This is interesting…I’d like to know what you would advise in my situation. Right now I’m aiming to shed around 20 pounds and add muscle mass to my frame. But there are so many different “systems” out there and I have no idea which one to trust. Can somebody point me towards a good plan for burning fat and adding muscle?
