Question by Desiree: How does spirituality help people understand the universe in which we live?
I don’t think it does at all; I think spirituality is really just a coping mechanism that people have invented and that is not based on any evidence or rational thought process. Spirituality is the sand in which people stick their heads like ostriches when the truth gets too hard for them to accept. But religious people (especially Catholics for some reason) keep telling me that science and spirituality are two methods of understanding the universe. How can imaginary nonsense help people understand the universe?

  • Averell A says:

    There are two levels of reality: natural and supernatural. Natural realities are understood by the senses; supernatural realities are accessed only by faith.

  • discord71 says:

    Jesus Christ stated that He is the truth…

    This apparently is harder for you to accept than it is for me to reconcile evolution…

    There is more to this world than just what we observe..To acknowledge this does take an open mind.

    It makes us understand that what we don’t understand about the universe is very well understood by the Intelligent Designer who created it.

  • oldguy63 says:

    It won’t help you obviously but for those of us who believe it helps a lot. Knowing the creation teaches us about the Creator, and knowing the Creator tells us a lot about His creation. Maybe it is you who have your head stuck in the sand. Think about it.

    Try this weird angle:

    Read what NASA has to say about Dark Energy and Dark Matter.

    Listen to real Quantum Physics professors are saying about what they are finding.

    Tell me after that, who is more correct in how things are.

  • Bevans says:

    It helps beceause spiritual or religious ideas are quick and easy, and don’t have to be backed up in any way. Reality-based ideas, however, require work and usually aren’t as soothing.

    But in the words of Carl Sagan, “It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.”

  • imacatholic2 says:

    Spirituality helps us realize the miracle and gift of the universe as God’s Creation.

    We are part of God’s Creation.

    We have been given stewardship over a tiny bit of God’s Creation.

    And through Science we discover more and more of God’s Creation.

    With love in Christ.

    The Bible tells us that humans are created in God’s image. (Genesis 1:26, 27) While this does not mean that humans resemble God in a physical way, it does mean that humans have the ability to reflect God’s personality traits, including the capacity for spiritual things, or spirituality.

    That being the case, it is logical to believe that God would also provide us with the means to satisfy our spiritual needs, as well as proper direction by which we can distinguish between what is beneficial and what is harmful to us spiritually. Just as God created our bodies with a superbly designed immune system, which fights disease and helps keep us healthy, he also equipped us with a conscience, or inner voice, which can help us make right decisions and avoid practices that are harmful physically and spiritually. (Romans 2:14, 15) As we know, for our immune system to work, it must be nourished properly. Similarly, for our conscience to work, we need to feed it with good spiritual food.

    Identifying the kind of food that will keep us spiritually healthy, Jesus said: “Man must live, not on bread alone, but on every utterance coming forth through God’s mouth.” God’s utterances are recorded in his Word, the Bible, and they are “beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight.” (2 Timothy 3:16) It is, therefore, up to us to put forth the effort to take in that spiritual nourishment. To the extent that we come to know the Bible and endeavor to apply its principles in our life, to that extent we will benefit spiritually and physically.—Isaiah 48:17, 18.
