    The beginnings of religious belief and science

    Is there fine line where spiritual beliefs and the observable natural world can meet? Both are part of humanity and helps shape the world. There is an effect and many do not agree to have both combined or integrated. Religion may be in peoples blood and culture, based on the life that is build upon. It helps find meaning that people are not just organisms that evolve from an insect or a grain of sand. The science part of it brings the engineers of the physical world. Science helps people to learn about the world. Discovering that which can be observed and also build peoples lives by learning about every degree and inch of the universe. A higher power may have fine tuned the universe for human being to live here. After readings and studying there are scientists like Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawkins, Nicola Copernicus that after they reach the limit of their studies, they believe of a higher intelligent mind. At a religious belief some say it is within people, God. Research shows that humans naturally want to know everything, that’s is why people question the world. There is a fine line where most people question a higher power. The world is a beautiful place and people are part of it. The belief of a greater power keeps many people grounded. Many scientists wish to fly within the clouds searching for something that is staring right back. Others are humble even within their intelligent minds to believe that someone or something is guiding the world. This is an important topic that sustains a mind to go within the parameters of people’s existence. The universe is an amazing puzzle and people are the chess of the world.

    • Interesting and always relevant topic, but it might be too broad. Perhaps you could narrow it down, discussing certain fields or aspects of science and religion? – Stephanie M. 7 years ago
    • Generally I would agree with Stephanie's comments, as your topic suggestion reads a little like a mini-article in itself. Nevertheless it's an topical suggestion for a topic (excuse the pun), considering how crazy the human world is right now. I'd be careful about the Anthropic principle angle though as the assumption that we live in a universe fine tuned for humans is very one-sided. We could, just as easily, have evolved and adapted to the universe as it is - we are, after all, a highly adaptable species. Good luck with your science and religion class. – Amyus 7 years ago

    • An essay can address where religion and science are compatible The Catholic Church's views expressed by Archbishop Gianfranco Ravasi, head of the Pontifical Council for Culture says evolution was discussed by St Augustine and St Thomas Aquinas. There is too much focus on the conflict of Creationism versus Evolution, because TV news shows like that. – Joseph Cernik 6 years ago
    • This is possibly THE question of the last 500 years, big topics and marvellous to think about... Looking back through our developmental history - specifically to the point where moved around hunting less and started farming more, we see a significant separation occur. Human beings (unknowingly i think) started to pull back from the Animism of ancient times - that is, we are one with the natural world and energy of the land and animals is the dominant spirit to which we all return. Everything from this point feeds into the development and spreading of the religious practices as we know them today - what i find intriguing is that really, science is just another branch of religion with very strict rules around what is acceptable or not. Religion and science, as we know them at this very minute, are both looking to understand how we found ourselves floating in space on a massive orb like rock spinning around other orb like rocks with zero explanations except what we come up with. They are also unreconcilable in that science refuses to acknowledge anything that can't be repeated again and again by an experiment with equations. Science claims to be neither form nor against anything but they do manage to frame out consciousness, feelings our internal and existential curiosities i.e. everything we use to motivate, consider and do about anything, which coincidently are the very things that drive religious thinking. My honest belief is that they are both pointing at the wonders of the natural world and ultimately looking at the same thing, but they are reluctant to confess their thesis. You and I should always remember the thing underneath all of this that keeps us going - as you have already said is that the cure for boredom is curiosity and as some of us are now acutely aware, there is no cure for curiosity. Thank goodness for that. – MichaelHall 6 years ago

    I’m old school, the glare of reading on a tablet or computer tires my eyes. The intimacy of choosing a book at a library is simply known for a magical aura, the book is choosing you. The turning and physically touching the book forms an intimate bond and experience. People are meant to use all their senses, if people use less senses, computers will be diminishinG our essence of what makes us human. Exaggerating, but true, when people are on their phones they forget about the beauty of the physical world, relying on digital world, encouraging cyber confidence: artificial likes.

    It’s the inner most feelings of an artist. He may have been feeling a certain way … or saw something beyond the white canvas and wanted it to react to just the simple line. Have an open mind and you can discover something more than what you can see. See beyond that line and you will discover something about the Artist and yourself. He wants you to use your imagination, build upon it.

    Understanding Abstract Art

    Thank you!…abstract art, as an artist for some people hard explain. In order to experience a world that is not based on images that you see, it builds greater knowledge and emotion into the piece. The piece becomes unique, uncopied, a piece that comes within you, it’s as if a new star in the universe has been discovered. What was not there before was invented by you that very instance that you place your brush on the canvas. It brings a sense of being, in the moment with your own thoughts and intimacy towards the tools that are used and your inner self. Expression of your current emotions at that moment that can be a breakthrough; a work that becomes more personal and it’s part of you and most of the time for me becomes priceless. It’s like a poets collection of poems; building the foundation of your dna on canvas and you wish to pass it on to your family or people that you are close to. Yes, artist also want to make money and build to be known, but the process and the finish product it is a discovery of a new invention to the artist. That piece of abstract art if you love it most likely you would like to keep it in your collection. Then there’s others you may feel are not as successfull to you and they may be beautiful to others, hopefully a buyer. ๐Ÿ˜‰ โ™กโ™กโ™ก

    There is a certain drama that captivated Zumbiel in this moment. It was his inspiration towards his poem. Something so simple and repetitive in his Poetic mind stood out from the rest. The rest would be those that have more busier duties and are running around forgetting about what life is about. The man standing watch is a simple man observing his life and all that surrounds him. He knows the value and appreciates every second that passes. It is as if the man watching is the one observing the reader.

    Poetry: An Appreciation of Repetition in Stan Zumbiel's "Standing Watch"

    Interesting topic. If someone writes a book why are they not consider a writer? Or are they only considered a writer if his or her book is successful? Or only if they are well known. Writing is an intimate profession that takes a lot of thinking and time. Reading books inspire people to do many things. One of them could be to begin writing your own story. Books can inspire many different situations in people’s lives and that is the gift of giving. And also the gift of learning about different things comes from reading what other people write. For those that enjoy writing, write yourself away no matter what. In the eyes of your pen, pencil etc. you’re the writer.
