Religion, Spirituality and Science

Spirituality

Spirtuality is many things - Yoga, meditation and personal concepts. Even Reiki can be considered spiritual.

Is it a religion? A life force? Just what is reiki?  “Rei” means “God’s wisdom or the Higher Power” and “Ki” means “life force energy.”

Science

Darwin continues to define the discusion on evolution and creation. Published On the Evolution of Species in 1859. Darin’s theories on evolution were quickly accepted by the vast majority of scientists. The general public, however, was not as eager to accept Darwin’s ideas. Mainly since evolution was in conflict with Religion. Even with 150 years passing since the book, science and religion are still at odds.

Religion

Religion is a bunch of things so what is religion is a tough question - here is what some people think.

“Religion consists in a set of things which the average man thinks he believes and wishes he was certain of.”
—Mark Twain

“Religion is excellent stuff for keeping common people quiet.” —Napoleon Bonaparte

“We go into religion in order to feel warmer in our hearts, more connected to others, more connected to something greater and to have a sense of peace.” —Goldie Hawn

“Religion is something left over from the infancy of our intelligence; it will fade away as we adopt reason and science as our guidelines.” —Bertrand Russell

Thinking thankfulness and passing it on

Friday, November 28th, 2008

So what was your year like?  Did you do a bunch of fun stuff, share some great time and change who you were?  I haven’t spent any time looking at the past, only the future and that may be an issue.  Thanksgiving was good - lots of food, family and friends.  I was forwarded a link by someone for ideas and how to be thankful, if that is indeed a concept.

I certainly wish everyone a happy black friday and hope to goodness you stimulate the economy, since it apparently needs to be kick started.  So why are you reading this blog?  You should be out shopping - see the light!
