Uniting Science and Religion: To take Judaism where no religion has gone before
“Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind”
The great Jewish physicist Niels Bohr, began his lectures by telling his students, “Consider everything I say as a question, not a statement.” Scientific skepticism accounts for its great success, and blind acceptance of myth, causes religion to be “mythguided”, “mythinformed” “mythled” and “mythogynistic.”
Most religions discourage questions about God and demand blind faith, i.e. belief in the absence of evidence, which is notoriously prone to error. This is like a politician saying “Trust me” and should be rejected by any thinking person.
Most religious authorities fear questions as witches fear the rising of the sun, because their concept of God does not hold up to rational inquiry, and they seek brainwashing and indoctrination, not truth. They respond to those who challenge dogma with evasion, anger, and even murder. Many people erroneously believe that all religions are the same, which is as false as equating all governments from fascism to democracy, and reflects lazy thinking, prejudice and ignorance.
