I am not sure it is the original source but that quote is in "Science and Christianity: conflict or coherence?" By Henry F. Schaefer. It is available from Amazon.

That's a nice Quantum Spanner you illustrate. I can think of some applications for it. [:)]

Or you could just use a bicycle spanner [;)]

...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!
