My first degree is in Science, my second degree is in Theology. I do not see a conflict between Science and Religion or Spirituality.
I do not see how measuring the thickness of the paint on the Mona Lisa, or analysing its chemical composition, or measuring the wavelengths of the light it reflects conflicts with appreciating its beauty. I do not see how analysing the wavelength of a Beethoven symphony conflicts with enjoying listening to it. I do not see how understanding human biology, chemistry, physics, psychology, conflicts with being part of a human friendship…
