Spiritual science

Opening minds for the better…

This is an excerpt from an interview with Dan Brown, author of “The Da Vinci Code”.

It starts with “Dan is a friendly, normal guy…”

Are you religious? I was raised Episcopalian, and I was very religious as a kid. Then, in eighth or ninth grade, I studied astronomy, cosmology, and the origins of the universe. I remember saying to a minister, “I don’t get it. I read a book that said there was an explosion known as the Big Bang, but here it says God created heaven and Earth and the animals in seven days. Which is right?” Unfortunately, the response I got was, “Nice boys don’t ask that question.” A light went off, and I said, “The Bible doesn’t make sense. Science makes much more sense to me.” And I just gravitated away from religion.

Where are you now? The irony is that I’ve really come full circle. The more science I studied, the more I saw that physics becomes metaphysics and numbers become imaginary numbers. The farther you go into science, the mushier the ground gets. You start to say, “Oh, there is an order and a spiritual aspect to science.”

An order and a spiritual aspect to science…I agree, much more meaningful and spectacular than primitive theistic concepts promoting reward or punishment beyond death.
