We finish our series on science by looking at the false dichotomy of Faith vs. Science.
The heavens tell of the glory of God. The skies display his marvelous craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known. They speak without a sound or a word; their voice is silent in the skies; yet their message has gone out to all the earth, and their words to all the world.
A great many scientists have been mystically inclined; Einstein was, Newton was. They often keep it quiet until they win the Nobel Prize or until they're retired. I think quite a number of scientists have a strongly developed mystical side, and don't see it as a contradictory to science.
Rupert Sheldrake, British Biologist, in Common Ground Magazine, July 2004
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. Albert Einstein There is a congruence between our minds and the universe, between the rationality experienced within and the rationality observed without.
Physicist and Theologian John Polkinghorne
Happiness is to see the world in a grain of sand, and Heaven in a wild flower, to hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in a single hour.
