This scientific discussion brought back a memory for me. There was a lady who came here about the same time I did who called herself Jane Q (if I remember correctly?). Her desire was to examine spiritual matters through the use of the scientific method. My heart breaks as I think of it. What did I see there? She wanted bigger answers but was using the scientific method as a safe place she could go back to. A structure of sorts, a life raft. She moved me, she still does. Huge intellect but needing something more that her intellect could not provide. I messed it up, perhaps the whole list did. I was too far gone to really try to help anyone. My only hope is that in some way, through my utter human ruin, she felt that someone cared. Water under the bridge now, but still heartbreaking. It's not about doing away with the scientific method, it's about adding love to it? This is just a guess on my part. We need that safety raft that science provides. It will always be there for us as long as we are in this temporal existence. But always, just one step away, is another world. The love, the heart, is the guide to that world which science dimly points to... perhaps. IMO (not a scientist but I love science and the art of science fiction).
