Quote# 136956



Most genuine thinkers were philosophers first and scientists next. Their quest was never complete merely with understanding physical laws. They always sought answers beyond that.

Its in the mid 20th century that people (Dawkins.) latched on to religions like Christianity and Islam and made a big song and dance about them. This created an artificial gap and this is where hard Scientism came into the picture.

Indicible

They were philosophers first, which explains why they stopped short of actually delving into explanations that would invalidate their worldviews. Scientists need to have as few preconceptions as possible, in order to actually find explanations.

It's not that religion is in competition with science, it's just that religion fails the scientific method.
