    Spiritual, but I DO only believe in science. It doesnt go against my spirituality

    I believe mostly in Higher Self, which has "divine" characteristics, but comes from higher wisdom that we humans arent always in touch with but it is within us. So something like god within.
    It doesnt go against sience - unconscious wisdom and love

    Or believing in LOVE goes against science?

    1. Faith and science are quite distinct. The first deals with accepting something in the absence of evidence; the second, with accepting something because of the evidence. Anyone who claims "to believe in science" misspeaks, or is ignorant. One accepts established scientific theories based upon the evidence, or one seeks to disprove them, again based upon evidence. One's beliefs require no such evidence, though people usually (hopefully) have reasons for what they believe. This is the realm of values, intuitions, feelings, etc.

    2. Science makes no claims about questions outside its scope, such as: does God exist? what is the meaning of life? do we have souls? Any scientist who does is now touting religion/spirituality, and not science. Grave problems result when we try to use one discipline to address the concerns of the other. We must use the right tool for the job.
    So true. Thanks for posting. It's a very important distinction to make.

    I think I'm something between spiritual and non-spiritual... I have no religion and I believe in science, since science is just a bunch of theories that people made to try to understand the world. And I think many of those theories make sense.
    But still, I can see beauty and meaning in the world and in life...

    Some of us see beauty and meaning in those scientific theories themselves.
