Memoirs of a Hayseed Physicist by Peter Martel

Dr. Bronson had wanted to know why I wasn’t in his Bible study class. At that time, Dalhousie was very much a Presbyterian institution. Much of this “ado” was probably related to the fact that old physicists e.g., Spinoza, Newton, Eddington, Townes, often delved into religion in their old age. Physics, I suppose, is a pursuit that makes you believe you’re close to God.
