Science and Humanity.


When we try to understand God scientifically we become more and more baffled.

This is because the scientific mode of thinking deals with the interaction of impersonal forces according to fixed laws.  God is absent.

We come to the conclusion that nature (and therefore God) is heartless.

But this is not true.

We humans are part of nature.
We are nature's heart.

We respond when a cyclone devastates a community.
We care for someone who is sick.

Animals also have hearts.
Dogs love you.  Horses love you.

We are all part of nature.
We are all interconnected.

Even our thoughts - the source of our individual pride - are subject to influences from the collective unconscious.

Science is true.
Your T.V. works, your microwave oven works, the electric light works.
So science is true.

It is up to us how this knowledge is used.
We can destroy the whole human race with nuclear weapons.
We can destroy the environment with pollution.

Or we can ask, "What does our heart say?"
And live.

Animals respond to love.
Plants respond to love.

It is up to us to be the heart of nature and the savior of planet earth.
