Science and Religion (Part 1)

Written by Val K

Continued from page 1

Cardinal John Henry Newman in his age wrote "Apologia Pro Vita Sau" an autobiography hailed asrepparttar loveliest of all spiritual autobiographies ever written inrepparttar 134982 English language of a man seeking religious affinity. Newman was just one of many seekingrepparttar 134983 elements of truth. The ancient Greek philosophers have always pondered over that word, truth. A test of faith, a quality which refuses to be measured. That which transcends logic and analysis.

A show of faith has always been one venerable aspect of religion, and to great extents part of science. It takes more faith to accept that which is "humanly incomprehensible." Likerepparttar 134984 Big Bang theory, andrepparttar 134985 so many yet unproven postulations ofrepparttar 134986 traditional sciences.

The human engine has always been one given to logic and reason; it quests intorepparttar 134987 dark depths andrepparttar 134988 attempts to relate these phenomena of existence into that which can be grasped byrepparttar 134989 senses. And out of beliefs or something close to "racial memory" comes myths and legends, which have governedrepparttar 134990 lives of men from time immemorial.

From Aristotle to modern thinkers like Locke,repparttar 134991 fundamentals of human life was got from observation and deep introspection. Hence grewrepparttar 134992 science of observation and thought—the pseudo science, philosophy, a discipline in which thought turns upon itself like a revolving gyre.

Out of this broad spectrum journeys forth,repparttar 134993 religious andrepparttar 134994 scientific philosopher, in a bid to see reason in an existence of chaos. A cosmos of order stands as an archetype from which assumptions can be drawn, or discarded when current fashions change, for that which is more socially "up-beat." But there is this search for stability, found inrepparttar 134995 Microsystems of life. Religion has offeredrepparttar 134996 lamp; sciencerepparttar 134997 spark. And with these we must now inquire.
