  •  But they don't use any parts of their faith (0+ / 0-)

    in order to do the science.  If they do, their work is compromised.

    Science and religion are completely un-related to each other, and therefore irrelevant to each other.

    You are trying tie too much of science to the beliefs of paganism and that won't work.

      Says who? You?

      You seem to forget that ALL of the scientists of the past, the astronomers, the physicians/healers, the mathematicians, the engineers.....ALL were people with some sort of spirituality, some sort of faith.

      There would BE no science without the people with deeply held spiritual beliefs...without their curiosity and questions about where we come from, how to heal their people, how the world works, how to build... Their observations of the seasons led to agriculture. Their wonder at the night sky and the world led to astronomy and mathematics and music and art.  

      Without us there would be no you....
