Hi guys,

Regarding Descartes.....

There has always been, and still is, a turf war between science and religion, each wanting to claim superiority over the other. And there's a bit of fear because most people believe that there's only one truth or that truth comes in only one form,
either in science or in the Bible.

WHOA! Talk about parochial. I guess Roger hasn't heard of the Quran, the Tao, the Eightfold Way, Dianetics, Wicca, the Torah,...

The interesting thing is that wars are fought over divine TRUTHs, be not over scientific knowledge.

It is the same, as you can see through history. Just that scientific knowledge impose itself in the shorter run than fundamental knowledge.

Science is just an attitude of modesty, religion is the belief that, not science, but what science tries to handle, makes sense, and it motivates (fundamental) research.

Of course humans, and even nature, perverts science and religion all the time for reason of dishonest selfish special local short term interests. That's part of life.
