Can there ever be a way to reconcile a "lame science" with "blind religion"?
Science and religion often seem to be at “war” with one another. For many, science has become their religion while others try to incorporate science into their religion, which may contradict their beliefs. Both “heartless science” and “mindless religion” miss truths about the nature of our existence in the universe. Naturally each side is quick to point out the errors and flaws that are in the other’s position. Albert Einstein once said, “Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.” What do you think? What is the root of our own morality and ethics? Where does the development of ethics fit into the advancement of science? What do you think should be the basis of our moral compass- religion, the collective will of the majority, common sense, rationality, or something else? Is the evolution of science moving faster than the evolution of ethics? Is this necessarily a bad thing?
