Mythology, Religion, and Science - according to Joe Empty

Quote :
I would say that all our sciences are the material that has to be mythologized. A mythology gives spiritual import - what one might call rather the psychological, inward import, of the world of nature round about us, as understood today.There's no real conflict between science & religion ... What is in conflict is the science of 2000 BC ... and the science of the 20th century AD.

Joseph Campbell, from an interview with Jeremy Mishlove

I hadn't quite thought of the old argument that way until now. He has a point, I think.

Yes, he does have a point. Mythology has played a major role in religion that is carried forward, although modified.

... and it will be just as true again in another two thousand years.

A "religious" bit from that 20th Century science:
Quote :
A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Albert Einstein

And this:

Quote :
To attain peace among the nations in any dynamic or enduring form requires not simply political negociation but a new mode of consciousness. The magnitude of this change is in the order of religious conversion or of spiritual rebirth...A change is needed in every phase of human life.
Thomas Berry, Evening Thoughts

I am finding all these insights from a single source that I happened upon earlier today: an online book by Anne Baring, The Dream of the Cosmos: A Quest for Soul
http://www.annebaring.com/anbar20_bk_dreamwater_002.htm
I am only just getting into it. More later.

Quote :
Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are part of nature and therefore part of the mystery that we are trying to solve.
— Max Planck

More from Max Planck (founder of Quantum Theory):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Planck

As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell, as a result of my research about the atoms, this much: There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particles of an atom to vibration and holds the most minute solar system of the atom together… We must assume behind this force, the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all matter.
