 Steven Weinberg on the Conflict Between Religion and Science
Weinberg would eventually win the Nobel Prize in physics for developing a theory that unified electromagnetic force and the so-called weak interaction, two of the four fundamental forces.
Science, Weinberg insists, is not merely a belief system and certainly is not, as philosopher Paul Feyerabend suggested, “a superstition.” Science is the path to truth, Weinberg thinks, and he is not shy about showing his irritation with philosophers who disagree.
Weinberg has a ready explanation for those to point to what seems to be evidence of conscious design, such as the just-right radioactive state of carbon or the very low energy density of empty space (the small “cosmological constant”).

 The Austin Chronicle Politics: Capitol Chronicle
In 1979, Weinberg won the Nobel Prize in physics, and he has been for many years a defense research consultant, working at one time on the still-unsolved problem of consistently distinguishing decoys from missile warheads.
Weinberg makes three strong arguments against missile defense: It is technically impractical if not literally impossible, it devotes scarce resources against the least likely nuclear threat, and it encourages the proliferation of nuclear weapons while simultaneously increasing the likelihood of nuclear catastrophe.
Preoccupied as we currently are with "rogue states" and terrorists, Weinberg argues that there are much cheaper and more likely ways for such enemies to attack, and for which missile defense is no answer.

 Contra Weinbergium: Steven Weinberg, ++Rowan Williams, and Ernest Gellner on fundamentalism and liberalism
Perhaps worse, Weinberg indiscriminately lumps together all so-called "religious liberals" with no awareness or interest in the often sharp differences among so-called "liberals." He shows no awareness of significant distinctions in their actual views, or major differences in their actual degree of rejection or acceptance of various traditional beliefs.
Another dogmatic agnostic/atheist of the Steven Weinberg type showing a total incomprehension of liberal and middle-of-the-road Christian theology was the Czech-English cultural anthropologist and social philosopher Ernest Gellner (1925-1995).
Again like Weinberg, he seems to have lumped together all so-called "liberal theologians" with no awareness of or interest in significant distinctions in their actual views, or major differences in their actual degree of rejection or acceptance of various traditional beliefs.
