Alan Lightman on Science and (Secular) Spirituality

Came across the today, and probably going to try and get his book. I like his understanding of faith.

Godliness in the Known and the Unknowable: Alan Lightman on Science and Spirituality | Brain Pickings

Love this: "Indeed, this tolerance for the unanswered — and possibly the unanswerable — is not only at the heart of creativity and the secret of happiness, but also, Lightman argues, the essence of faith."

Also, here is Alan Watts on faith and belief: Alan Watts on the Difference Between Belief and Faith | Brain Pickings Will probably get his book The Wisdom of Insecurity. Anyone read it? What did you think?

I've read none of these but I'll be checking them out. Just ten seconds ago I was thinking about returning to my old church called Church of Religious Science. (Science of Mind) These are similar possibly? I think belief is something you have and faith is something you live, a verb, as in faithing. Thanks for these SoberJennie!

No idea about that church, Oldsoul.

I'm probably going to read the Alan Watts first.
