Religion, Spirituality and Science

Sunday, January 18th, 2009

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
