God and Science Do Mix: The Creator's Interference in Creation

"In a Wall Street Journal opinion piece that is replete with unintended irony, cosmologist Lawrence Krauss says, 'Science and God Don’t Mix.'

His message centers on this quote from geneticist J.B.S. Haldane (1892-1964):

That is to say, when I set up an experiment I assume that no god, angel or devil is going to interfere with its course; and this assumption has been justified by such success as I have achieved in my professional career. I should therefore be intellectually dishonest if I were not also atheistic in the affairs of the world."
