The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science.
Quantum Science and Einstein have been frequent guests here at Wisdom and Life. I’ve long felt that Science and Spirituality can walk hand in hand.
Einstein seems to have a grasp on spirituality and before I started writing Wisdom and Life I was under the false impression that scientists made no room for faith and spirituality. Carl Sagan became the first scientist to make me doubt that opinion. And soon after, Einstein followed. If you look at the above quote that is attributed to Einstein, you will clearly see there is room in his view for the mysterious. I’m assuming here that the mysterious refers to faith and spirituality. Especially after reading some of his other thoughts on the matter. Simply point to his name at the top of this column and you can read more from Wisdom and Life on his belief system.
In school we are made to believe that science has the answer. Sometimes that’s true and sometimes it isn’t.
We have to be open to the unknown.
We have to be open to the mysterious.
Sometimes science will lead only to the mysterious. We have to be open to that.
How does science explain weeping Madonnas? While I understand that some of these have been proven to be hoaxes.
What of those that have not?
And what of Stigmata?
We can’t disprove all of these.
Science has its own mysteries as well:
Multi-Dimensions as in The Many Worlds Theory. I’ve written about The Many Worlds Theory at Wisdom and Life before as well.
So even though, Wisdom and Life is a faith based blog, you can see that I feel the same way that Einstein did:
That Science and Spirituality can walk hand in hand.
Be Happy! Be Well! Be Positive!
Blessings to you.
Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;
We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying. For there truly is no end.
I sincerely believe they can and do walk hand in hand. Great post, Chris!
