Lukas Ansteeg Posted over 3 years ago Alain de Botton: Atheism 2.0 Science needs to mature? Please understand that science is not a counterpart to religion, it is a way of understanding the universe. Science has no business with morality or philosophy. Statements like "while it has opened our minds, it has closed our hearts" may sound poetic, but what do you base this claim on? From the peaceful bliss and universal love that is found in history books?
