Example text

Why is that? For one thing, everybody has different assumptions and opinions. They are basic assumptions – not merely superficial assumptions – such as assumptions about the meaning of life; about your own self-interest, your country’s interest, or your religious interest; about what you really think is important. And these assumptions are defended when they are challenged. People frequently can’t resist defending them, and they tend to defend them with an emotional charge. We’ll discuss that in more detail later, but I’ll give an example now.

Scientists also get into the same situation. Each one may hold to a different view of the truth, so they can’t get together. Or they may have different self-interests. A scientist who is working for a company that produces pollution may have a certain selfinterest in proving that the pollution is not dangerous. And somebody else might have self-interest in proving that it is dangerous. And perhaps then somewhere there is an unbiased scientist who tries to judge it all. Science is supposed to be dedicated to truth and fact, and religion is supposed to be dedicated to another kind of truth, and to love.

If so, it may raise the question “Is it absolutely necessary? ” then at some point it may loosen up. ” Then the whole thing becomes easier, and it becomes possible to let that conflict go and to explore new notions of what is necessary, creatively.
