    this is so true. when it comes to 'right now' knowledge ppl depend more on science but when things look promising they leave it to faith. The key is to have faith 'in an emergency'. (Report) Reply

    Well, Albert Einstein has a fine line on science and religion when he said “religion without science is blind, science without religion is deaf” or words to that effect which are being immortalized by Emily Dickinson in her “Faith is a fine invention' poem. Certainly, poets have a unique way of expressing their own perspective on the things they feel and see. (Report) Reply
