Should a scientist talk about G-d?

As Jews around the world prepare for Shabbat, many add a little extra Torah-study to their Friday to-do list. After all, what's a Shabbat meal without a devar Torah (brief Torah presentation, usually on a part of that week's Torah portion).

Here's a brief video (under 2 minutes) about G-d. It's about G-d and the world of science. It's about how the world of science accounts for G-d in the natural world. 

The video doesn't have any direct link to this week's Torah Portion (Mishpatim). But as you go about your Shabbat preparations, perhaps this video will be food for thought for you. 

The video comes from israelvideonetwork

So, who protects Israel? Does an invisible shield protect Israel? Does pure luck protect Israel?

As the narrator suggests here, what we see in the Nature essay is science at a loss. When it comes to Israel, it's luck that protects the Jews?

As the narrator also suggests, modern science cannot accept the idea of G-d. They prefer luck to G-d. 

Yes, the video says it all: G-d forbid a scientist should suggest that G-d protects Israel. G-d forbid there should be miracles!

Fortunately, some of us know better.

Shabbat shalom!
