We do live in strange times.
Some days, I actually agree!
In some respects I think we actually going backwards!
Not so long ago the Sciences were the popular subjects, using reason, fact and logic was helping us to discover how truly amazing our universe is.
How did we become so skeptical? When did we decide that personal truth was more important than scientific truth?
Define what you mean by "going backwards". Are these people "backwards"?
, William Herschel
, Blaise Pascal
? Let's see...that covers some major figures in genetics, physics, astronomy, math, science, and electricity. Since when was science and Christianity mutually exclusive?
This is a fun list:
It looks like Charles Babbage
made the list.
I know that many religions are growing and our belief in 'new-age' beliefs is also on the increase. I find this alarming!
I respect anyones belief's it's important that their rights are upheld but we need to look at how we are educating ourselves and our children in a balanced and truthful way, teaching all religions and sciences, not one version of a 'truth'
and I can say this with full conviction being a Christian for so many years. I didn't just read the bible I used to teach it in Sunday school, on reflection I should have also been teaching the children about other faiths and science so when they were older
enough they could choose, I feel now that I was letting those children down by merely in-doctoring them.
Wow, I didn't know that. I have great respect for people's beliefs, too, by the way. But to say that Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and other religions all lead to the same path is incorrect...because they all have
different concepts of God, spirituality, the afterlife, etc.
