Man the Magician

Science enormously emphasizes the unique status of Man. It makes him much more obviously the lord of creation, the measure of all things, the image of God. What it does not do is to give any guarantee whatever that this magician will use his powers well, that he will advance "pari passu" (on equal footing) in moral as in material things. Put those two facts together, and you find yourself facing the two dogmas of the Creation and the Fall.
