Steven Pinker On Religious Opinion

Religious Opinion

If we set aside the possible cynical implications of Steven Pinker’s quote on religious opinion, I think  it uncovers an important truth about religion. It’s implied purpose in life is provide a framework to hold our view of the world.  In this respect, it is the original science.  For this reason, religion should be obliged to view it’s younger sibling, science, with affection, appreciation, and wonder. For in youth is found our future.
