I been known to spew many things from time to time, but nonsense isn't among them...What I said is not nonsense in any way shape or form, but a logical statement regarding the nonassociation of religion to science. Knowledge does indeed shape our understanding of the universe, yet as far as faith goes a lack of knowledge doesn't hinder the believer...In other words faith is not based on facts but beliefs. Not just beliefs, but PERSONAL beliefs. While knowledge is a common understanding of the way things work.
Name me ONE
well known scientist or philosopher that didn't believe science played a role in our formulation of spiritual views. Even books today about faith are being written by scientists and philosophers
, such as Richard Dawkins (scientist), Sam Harris (scientist), Ken Miller (scientist), Francis Collins (scientist), Daniel Dennett (philosopher), etc., etc., etc. And, note, that Collins and Miller are *Christians* who are encouraging Christians to abandon matters of faith that oppose modern science.
And, if you had read my original post, you'd realize Einstein's special relativity brings up questions about creation, free will, etc., etc. The father of quantum mechanics, Max Planck, believed such sciences added to the support of their being a Mind or Consciousness in nature.
And really, any faith or religion that doesn't take Science into account is void of reason. Period.
