Science - Religion Debate
"Science and religion,
science and religion,
science and religion.
Their relationship really would drive humanity insane,
if only humanity were sensitive enough."
Talk to us:
Science or religion, or both, or neither?
Some call the science-religion debate "the fundamental crisis of our times." Our basic assumptions and convictions about "who we are and how we live" serve as the basis and solid (and sometimes not-too-solid) ground for our day-by-day lives. And this ground now hosts a turf battle between different worldviews, where many are caught in the crossfire.
This debate brings fundamental questions up for grabs, questions that breed struggles between hearts and heads, faith and reason, between what we want to believe and don't want to think is true, and questions about who to trust . . . religious authority, or scientific experts, both, or neither?
For anyone interested in these matters and where the argument now stands, LiveReal is also interested in wading through the bull and getting down to what is happening at present on the front lines.
And so, your trusty and dedicated Agents are continually working to gather the most interesting, factual, conclusive, no-bull information and events on the current state of the argument (ahem, discussion), here for you to explore.
Where Are You?
In this corner
. . .
- and in this
corner . . .
the Science-Religion Debate
has almost exactly replaced the role
that revelation served in the Middle Ages.
Then, if you wanted the final verdict on what is true,
you would go to the scriptures and the traditions of the church.
Now we go to science. Science has become the revelation of our time."
Appendix: So, what's the answer?
if there really is a "scientific approach to the good life,"
such as the one us LiveReal folks claim to be looking for . . .
every "science" must have experiments
. . .
psychology, physiology, and medicine,
wherever a debate between the mystics and the scientists has been
once for all decided,
it is the mystics who have usually proved right about the facts
while the scientists had the better of it in respect to the theories."
William James (1842-1920)
