Compatibility of Science and Religion.

The two could be compatible, but it would require an evolutionary adjustment on the part of both.

A more monistic understanding on the part of the religiously inclined.

A less materialistically bound reasoning on the part of science.

For the religious, thinking of God and Creation as separate things, would have to give way to a more mature understanding of the God/Creation paradox. Our experience, an expression of God in finite form. Not separate.

For scientists, there would have to be a realization that the phenomena such as mind, self, consciousness, etc., which are currently relegated to the secondary realm of mere processes, are completely integral to the whole. The physical universe of gravity/light/time/space, is not a separate thing from the experiential realm of ideas/feelings/desires/will.

A catalyst for this change might be the contemplation of “true infinity”. Not the “pseudo infinities” of mathematics but their prototype. The infinite aggregate of infinities. The singularity that is the foundation.

Compatibility arising, as the theory of evolution becomes less about randomness and complexity vs. God’s plan, and more about self discovery. God’s plan, having also given way to the same.
