Cynical, but True! wink

...but already specified not talking about the 'god of the gaps' or equating god with the dark 95 percent... but you sound as if science precludes spirituality, or vice versa; but....

Can't the two be seen as different perspectives on ways to understand reality--each based on different definitions, concepts, etc., with each useful in different circumstances or for different intentions--but still meaningful for the purposes of relating to and understanding reality. As with Relativity and Truth, the perspective makes a difference to understanding the reality.

And sometimes science is too specialized to see the big, humane picture--and sometimes religion is too generalized to see the reality on the ground--so they each seem to have value in complementing each other. There isn't a problem with contradictions, is there?
