Science VS Religion

For many people on both sides of the issue one believes either in science or religion but not both. I believe that they are not mutually exclusive but two parts of the human experience. Religion is a personal spiritual experience that can not be measured by others. Science is measurements of the universe around us.

My mother was always a very spiritual Christian woman and taught me about God and prayer from a very early age. As a young man I had a powerful spiritual experience that I interpreted from a Christian point of view. For me there is no doubt that God exist and relates to all creation for I have felt the presence of the Holy Spirit.

I have always been interested in science and still enjoy studying it. Science has to deal with things that can be observed and measured. The fact that over time new measurements have cause scientist to change their theories does not bother me. The gathering of new information and adjusting theories is an on going part of a scientist profession.

I do not see a conflict between the two disciplines regardless of the beliefs of the religion. For me science can only discover the things God created. For me faith reveals the why of the what and that is enough.

My mother and I a few years ago. I love her so very much and her love and faith made me the man I am today. Happy Mother's Day Mom.
