Science Trips Over Its Own Feet (Politics)

The pendulum of my life has seen both sides and came to rest firmly in the middle. I grew up very religious, and swung to the far opposite side of atheism, and then came back to rest at agnosticism. One thing I have learned is that to far in either direction is no good. Materialism can not explain everything, neither can spiritualism. The are not two separate and distinct worlds, but two sides of the same coin, life. I do not think, and yes, this is my opinion, that science will ever reach a completely unified theory that explains everything. Nor do I think that blind religion is the way to live. Their must be a balance between faith and rational thought. Rational thought explains your world and allows you to work and live within the constraints of the material existence, while faith and spiritualism allows a person to contemplate things that they know but can't explain away with science. If the two could work together, such as whats been done somewhat with Buddhism, I think they would be a quite unstoppable force for the betterment of humanity.
