Mario Livio made the most commom mistake of all in today's modern world--that is, a naive separating the truths of science from the truths of being as if they are two separate worlds with different ways of knowing. However, there is one scientific tenet which is important to both worlds (if they are separate): Ask the right question if you want to get a meaningful answer.
Instead of the unanswerable question "Does God exist?" I prefer to rephrase the question to "Does the universe exist?" If the answer to that question is "yes" then the clincher is "what is the nature of the universe?" Anwser: "more strange than any of us can imagine." And in that strangeness, who is to say there are two separate realms of knowning or being?
