    Spirituality and science are simply different epistemological systems for understanding our existence.

    ^ or in dumb person terminology, both start with a "why?"


    ... and in my opinion, both should continually be subjected to the same question to keep them in line as well!

    I really disagree with you guys. If epistemological preference is correlated to neurology (and... I mean come on) and if spirituality is as well. Who is to say there aren't neurological networks that overlap? It's only ideology that completely seperates the mind, body, and soul not reality.
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    I have told my children that being a scientist is understanding God's mysteries of the physical world.
