Science and/or Religion

I personally prefer the Science approach. I feel more love for life because of all things that have been discovered or invented. But there are many things that the Science can't explain, and the only decent answer for them is Faith of the teachings of a religion, although religions have a very well documented ethical and moral system, the religions also cripple many of the possibilities that people may have. Maybe they don't want to live in some way, but religions force the living. Check the opinion of some religions about the abortion law. Go figure.

As the great Albert Einstein said: "Science without Religion is cripple. Religion without science is blind." Great examples of this thought are Alfred Nobel (Dynamite) and Galileo Galilei ("E pur si muove") respectively.

Louis Pasteure said "A bit of science distances one from God, but much science nears one to Him." and "The more I study nature, the more I stand amazed at the work of the Creator." Even after all of our achievements in both areas, we still want to be sure enough of the Origin and Creation of everything, material and/or spiritual.

I dream for the day that both can unite...
