Essay Prompt 2
We can only try to pay tribute by devoting our time and energy is the great search for explanations of God and what he has done. Science can be a form of praise and reverence and in that same mind it is a spiritual thing while being performed. They can work together helping some understand and experience faith in a completely different way. The first time I got a grasp of how much I like to indulge in science and religion: I was having a “civil argument” with other scientific minds at a planetarium about science and faith/religion.
