There is no excuse for refusing to honor Science and Religion, and their exceptionalist and universal roles in the life of any creature. Those creatures inhabiting the higher forms of Consciousness are expressing a longing for Truth and Faith, complimentary and opposed indices.
We are given only Scientific Truth and Religious Faith. We are not permitted "Scientific Faith"; we cannot give credence to "Religious Truth".
Consciousness is a vector. On this arrow we know we move to and from. Take our comfort in this Truth. Have Faith, as this is what we have.
- Did Socrates say "Know Thyself", or was he misunderstood, as all are. Show Thyself is all we can do. The knowing is unknowable. I am filled with joy. It can't be helped.
Became a Farmer, Builder, Musician, Tank Commander, Librarian, Lawyer and Minister. I have failed at many things. And now retired. Filled, just filled, with Joy.
