The Seeing Eye

I read an essay by CS Lewis this weekend called "The Seeing Eye."  I found the following very insightful:

"Looking for God--or Heaven-- by exploring space is like reading or seeing all Shakespeare's plays in the hope that you will find Shakespeare as one of the characters or Stratford as one of the places.  Shakespeare is in one sense present at every moment in every play.  But he is never present in the same way as Falstaff or Lady Macbeth.  Nor is he diffused through the play like a gas."

This thought is even more applicable today (he wrote this in the fifties or sixties when space exploration was just taking off) because the more science our society masters, the greater its confidence that this knowledge can and has effectively replaced God .  But Who or even What is the author of these scientific laws?
