I enjoyed the conversation and appreciate Lord Martin Reese’ desire for a smarter more thoughtful public dialogue and peaceful coexistence of the religion vs. science discourse. One thing that I often find perplexing in these types of philosophical or religious discussions is why it is so hard for some people to consider that others may indeed believe in the importance and findings that science brings to humanity, and disagree with the dogmas that come with today’s mainstream religions, yet at the same time not be atheists.
To me, the possible complex origami that Lord Martin describes might lie within a single small point in space, is further reason to believe that humans do not and cannot have an understanding of what may lay beyond in the spiritual realm. It is possible to believe in the importance of science, and the conclusions it draws, and yet still be spiritual and have a faith in a God.
