Religion and Science
We must master both the physical and the spiritual reality
The Roman poet Vergil (70-19 BC) said: “Happy is he who gets to know the reasons for things.”
We are questioning beings with a natural desire to understand and make sense of the world in which we live.
People ask questions like:
- Why does the sun rise and set?
- When will it rain?
- Why isn’t it raining?
- How can we make it rain?
- Why is there a universe?
- Why do people suffer?
In order to find answers to such questions and make sense of the world in which we live, religion, science and philosophy developed. Originally they were not divided. The first astronomers were priests. Medicine men were both prophets and physicians. They strove for an integrated explanation.
