Quantum mechanics and God DO go together

Max Planck: “There can never be any real opposition between religion and science; for the one is the complement of the other. Every serious and reflective person realizes, I think, that the religious element in his nature must be recognized and cultivated if all the powers of the human soul are to act together in perfect balance and harmony. And indeed it was not by accident that the greatest thinkers of all ages were deeply religious souls.” (In Where is a Science Going? 1932)
Werner Heisenberg: “Getting beyond the conflict narrative: “The first gulp from the glass of natural sciences will turn you into an atheist, but at the bottom of the glass God is waiting for you.” 

Just two quotes to set you wondering why we so often presume that there has to be a conflict.
