It is said that, spirituality without science is a superstation and science without spirituality is a devil.
The marriage of science and spiritually is always very exciting and the most deserving and demanding as well. We are surrendered to more towards religion despite of huge technological advancement. These days most of the news channel are focused on astrology, star OMEN because “woh hi bikta hai”. This is because of people’s insecurity in this competitive globalized world or because of their attitude of insatiateness or because of both. We never try to link the basis of science to these thing like stars, sun sign of our life, may be fear of GOD OR SOME SUPER NATURAL POWER. The teenagers or the Gen Y people are more visiting to temples ( of course some part of X gens also).
If spirituality would have touched science then “Little boy and Fat man” never approached their ways to two such beautiful cities. Einstein never thought of such a disastrous consequences of his invention.
Einstein may have not believed in God, but he felt that faith was a must. This is probably why he never gave a second thought to studying the quantum theory and its random nature. He once said that "God does not throw dice", meaning that quantum theory randomness is out of the question for him. This belief in faith is probably also why his position towards religion was often misinterpreted. Also Religion can not force Science in agreeing with what they want to hold as their dogma. For if Religion and Science don't agree you do have superstition. Religion and science are ultimately about the same thing, that they affect one another, and that people in the two fields therefore need to communicate. The development of a technological society does not free us from ethical demands.
Science and religion are two windows that people look through, trying to understand the big universe outside, trying to understand why we are here. The two windows give different views, but both look out at the same universe. Both views are one-sided, neither is complete. Both leave out essential features of the real world. And both are worthy of respect. In the words of Pope John Paul II, Science can purify religion from error and superstition; religion can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes. Each can draw the other into a wider world, a world in which both can flourish…We need each other to be what we must be, what we are called to be.
