Science and religion used to work together. It's only in the last hundred year that science and the esoteric have been removed from one another. I put part of the blame on the advent of Christianity, when you either had faith in God or were prosecuted. I don't think you either have science or religion...I think that there is both and if we had used science and spirituality as partners then we might be further than we are today. These ancient cultures who blended both were much more advanced then they were originally given credit for. It's hard to even imagine how we would define our western world outside of a Christian context. Imagine if heathens had overthrown Christianity or even the Egyptians, how would they understand the science? I mean, we think it's separate from religion because obviously God didn't create the world in seven days...but how would other cultures have used this knowledge? And science is in that context with Christianity. Which is why I don't put all of my faith (no pun intended), in science.
