I believe science and religion are leading us to the same place. As someone who studies both the humanities and avidly follows scientific developments, I have found striking similiarities between the two sets of beliefs.
The science of the astronomy specifically presents us with the enigma of our existence. Where did we come from? Why are we here? The big questions that religion seeks to answer are essentially the same as science. Is there bad science and false prophets? Of course, but at their essence, they seek the same things.
Religion says we all have souls/spirits, unique energy potential, and capabilities to do great and terrible things. Many of these ancient discoveries pre-dated their scientific discoveries as measureable phenomenon, such as the discover of brain waves, EKG rythms, so on and so forth….
Scienctific discoveries seem to back manybof these discoveries especially in the quantam field. The idea that everything is vibrating, constantly in motion, interconnected in ways we can not inagine boggles the mind.
Ultimately, I think, if we make it ling enough, we will discover that both points of view were wholly correct nor incorrect, which will hopefully lay the ground for greater unity amoung our species.
