People are finally recognizing that the aims and aspirations of science, and the aims and aspirations of most organized religions (after peeling off superficial and cultural trappings and baring the basic “pearls of wisdom”) are similar. The difference (in my view) is that science points out what needs to be fixed and religion assures us that, if we all pull together, it will be fixed.
I believe we need more religion in this world – not less. The problem is that people have been pulling away from most of our wise and wonderous religious teachings and allowing the “radicals” to fill the gap.
It’s like politics – if we don’t vote- just stay home and rant- nothing changes!
