      I love science.It is not the enemy.

      Religion is also polluting politics.

      Some religious people follow dognma and dismiss anything that challenges their belief system.They are authoritarians.

      While other religious people see religion as a way to explore the meaning of life,like philosophy.I tend to embrace a god-image that is tolerant of others,even atheists.I like mysteries.I am a religious liberal.

      I do ,however, believe that ethics should play a big part in our lives.We should treat one another with respect and dignity.Let God work out the details.
      I am too busy trying to live my life.

      Cynicism leads to Inactivity. Hope leads to Action.

      •  It is unfortunate that 'some religions' attempt (0+ / 0-)

        to enforce their beliefs upon others. I believe in freedom for all religious views until they try to force their views upon me...guess I would not have done well during The Spanish Inquisition.
