Quote for a Sunday

Physicist Paul Davies on the perplexities of the life and consciousness friendly universe and its origin:

The problem with saying God did it is that God himself or herself is unexplained, so you’re appealing to an unexplained designer. It doesn’t actually explain anything; it just shoves the problem off. But to say that the laws of physics just happen to permit life is no explanation either.
