If you seek for understanding without knowledge then chose spirituality...if you seek for knowledge without understanding then chose science. In truth, there are things the heart and spirit understands which can not be proven with our scientific measures...as they have progressed to date. However, there are things that science can give definitive measure of, which oddly, has a tendency to demonstrate how miraculous this reality is...and that possibly there is divine intelligence in the make up.

I honestly don't believe there is a better choice between them however, if I had to chose one and reject the other...I would go with the spiritual aspects of things. In my experience, that which science is sure of has had a tendency to drift with the ages...and sometimes it changes and science becomes - outdated.

Science is like the letter "C". There is always something missing in scientific theories. No two scientists agree and hence there are multiple answers to one question. But God is like the letter "O" which is complete in itself without any ambiguity. Science is still grappling with the answers for origin of the universe or origin of the species. They posit different theories. Like the Big Bang theory which has not been proved beyond doubt. But spirituality contains all answers to human life in various scriptures and philosophies. Most scientist are rationalists and they do not believe any thing which has not been proved scientifically.

When you look deep enough, you'll see there is no choice that needs to be made. The more I've learned about science, the more spiritual I become. The intricacies of the Universe are so complex...both so minute and so all-encompassing...as science can now prove, that I cannot in any way believe it's all random. And all that complexity works together, fits together, grows in a creative energy together. The more I learn about even one object - say, a tree - and how it works on the cellular and sub-cellular levels, the more in awe of some Guiding Force I am.

Science is of Spirit and Spirit is of Science

That which is Energy
That which is Vision
That which is Open
That which is Love
That which is Unity
That which is Time
That which is Inspiration

It has always saddened my that science and spirituality has never really meshed well. For humanity to really go forward I do believe that both have to be taken seriously and then we may finally get some troublesome questions answered.

I've always thought they are greater together than alone. The pure scientists who won't accept anything other than scientific facts - and the spiritualists who disdain science both seem lacking to me.

Why do you think one has to choose one or the other? Einstein frequently said that intuition was the most important thing. He devoted his whole life to understanding light on many levels.

Neither. They have different purposes and one does not exclude the other. Science has to do with the world around you and spirituality concerns the world within you.
