Quote reblogged from Stuff to Blow Your Mind with 15 notes
The goal is to avoid committing to any particular story, whether that’s religious fundamentalism or strict atheism. The goal of possibilianism is to retain the wonder that drives us all into science in the first place and to avoid acting as though we know the answers to things we can’t possibly know at the moment.
David Eagleman, “Are Scientists Atheists?” by Robert Lamb (via stufftoblowyourmind)
“The vast majority of Hindus and Buddhists would probably say that the conflict between science and faith is a purely Western phenomenon”
I would agree with them.
