Karen....I love the precision of science....but a deep part of me turns to and yearns for the beauty of that ancient poetry and all the thought it inspires as well. I see no contradiction for G-d made me as I am, and I love Him for that gift. It was, is and always will be imperfect, but the love that gave it was, is and eternally will be perfect.
I'm not going to judge anybody for the things they wish to believe in or the ideas that help them through this life. I WILL judge people for using those beliefs and ideas to judge and hurt others who believe differently than they do. That's the last I'm going to say about religion/faith here.
I see beauty and poetry in science -- the fact that it is forever new, forever unfolding, with new discoveries every day, the freshness of it, does things to me, touches me in completeness where my prior beliefs (in supernatural things) touched me only in part.
If anybody wants to take my joy for science and read that as some sort of jab toward their faith, then perhaps their problem isn't so much with me and what I believe, but in what THEY believe (because what I remember of my faith when I had it, G-d/God created
science--the 2 do not have to be mutually exclusive).
