The limits of scepticism

"Atheist and agnostic physicists argue that to invoke God as the explanation for this is unscientific and ridiculous. But religious physicists respond by saying that the only alternative on the table, that there are an infinite number of universes, is no less preposterous, and no more consistent with the evidence. You can almost hear Cleanthes cry, 'Is not such an unequal conduct a plain proof of prejudice and passion?'"
