SALVATION & MERCI FOR YOU ALL
WHY NOT UNITE THE TWO SISTER OF EVER???
I DO NOT THINK THAT SCIENCE CAN PROVE RELIGIOUS DOGMA WRONG!!!
I DO NOT THINK THAT RELIGION CAN NOR WANT BREAK SCIENCE!!!
Here is a short expose to prove, and to show how to unite religion & science without one usurping the place of the other...
A dialogue between Science & Religion, moderated by Reason
You will never make me believe in the existence of God.
You have not the privilege of believing, but you will never prove to me that God does not exist.
In order to prove it to you, I must first know what God is.
You will never know it. If you knew it, you could teach it to me; and when I knew it, I should no longer believe it.
Do you then believe without knowing what you believe?
Oh, do not let us play with words! It is you who do not know what I believe, and I
believe it precisely because you do not know it. Do you pretend to be infinite? Are you not stopped at every step by mystery? Mystery is for you an
infinite ignorance which would reduce to nothing your finite knowledge, if I did not illumine it with my burning aspirations; and if, when you say,
"I no longer know," I did not cry, "As for me, I begin to believe."
But your aspirations and their object are not (and cannot be for me) anything but hypotheses.
Doubtless, but they are certainties for me, since without those hypotheses I should be doubtful even about your certainties.
But if you begin where I stop, you begin always too rashly and too soon. My
progress bears witness that I am ever advancing.
What does your progress matter, if I am always walking in front of you?
You, walking! Dreamer of eternity, you have disdained earth too much; your feet are benumbed.
I make my children carry me.
They are the blind carrying the blind; beware of precipices!
FAITH. No, my children are by no means blind; on the contrary, they enjoy twofold sight:
they see, by thine eyes, what thou canst show them upon earth, and they contemplate, by mine, what I show them in Heaven.
What does Reason think of it?
I think, my dear teachers, that you illustrate a touching fable, that of the blind man and the paralytic.
Science reproaches Faith with not knowing how to walk upon the earth, and
Faith says that Science sees nothing of her aspirations and of eternity in the sky.
Instead of quarreling, Science and Faith ought to unite; let Science carry Faith, and let Faith console Science by teaching her to hope and to
It is a fine ideal, but Utopian. Faith will tell me absurdities. I prefer to walk without her.
What do you call absurdities?
I call absurdities propositions contrary to my demonstrations; as, for example, that three make one, that a God has become man, that is to say, that
the Infinite has made itself finite, that the Eternal died, that God punished his innocent Son for the sin of guilty men. ...
