Entry 15 – This I Believe…

November 20, 2009

Keeping it short today…

Here is my quick 5-step, final summation of what I believe: 

  1. We are a part of an amazing story that involves science as the central character, not a supernatural being like a god. 
  2. The history of science is one of the most incredible stories ever told; more incredible than any religious sacred text, and one in which I think every person on the planet should come to appreciate.
  3. All the effort and energy from human beings to try and figure out natural phenomena through science and reason, and make the world a better place, is simply remarkable. 
  4. An idea is more powerful than any supernatural being we can imagine, and the building of such ideas from one generation to the next, the continuing struggle to come up with solutions to life’s most pressing problems is what gives life meaning. 
  5. The human mind, collectively speaking, is limitless in its ability to produce solutions when challenged with problems.  

Interestingly, these 5 things don’t have to preclude ‘faith’ in a god or anything supernatural for that matter.  I just happen to have come to the conclusion that I don’t need supernatural beings in my worldview.  Faith also doesn’t have to exclude following the scientic method to come up with amazing ideas. 

For next time, I’d like to go into more detail about faith, the scientific method, and how science applies to everything we do!

Until next time, thanks for stopping by!
