    Science has been given too much credit.

    It has become a religion for modern societies. Religio means a bind or a link between man and God. Scientific pursuits before the 17th century used to be this link. When man severed this link, but taking his own being as the measure of truth, that was the day when our vision...

    evolution. Like no I don't think humans came from monkeys. But I do think that whales once walked on land. That sort of evolution that's not necessarily from species to species is undeniably real. It borders on that line between evolution and adaptation

    Religion keeps stressing how humble it is,
