Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Because of both badly-misused Science and poorly done spirituality, many of us have been taught that Science, and the spirituality part of Religions, must always be at loggerheads. Nothing could be further from the truth! The Ancient Greeks studied both Science and Philosophy and determined that they were best seen as the two different sides of the one coin of knowledge. This is still the best way of looking at these two very-different ways of perceiving both ourselves and our universe. They also described Science as an evidence-based search for How things worked. Philosophy, of which spirituality is an integral part, was seen as a search for absolute Truth. They saw Philosophy as being done using debates as to the strengths and weaknesses of different ways of perceiving the Who and Why of all that is.When we meld these two different ways of looking at our universe, as well as our place in it, we will make amazing progress.

About the Author

Jesuis Laplume is the nom de plume of Jim H. White, when he writes on the coming together of science and the spirituality of Religions. He was trained as a scientist in an Engineering faculty and spent fifty years helping to move new science into practice, sometimes adding bits to that science where it was needed. He usually took a physical system science role during that process, working with experts in the details, but assuming the roles of the one who looked at the bigger picture, and tried to find the best questions to ask. He found, with few exceptions, that few present experts liked to be told that the science had changed enough that they were going to have to change their ways. Sometimes their responses were vitriolic in nature. He worked in eight different fields of science and engineering and met many of the best in their fields. These were uniformly humble and had a wry sense of humor. They learned, with each success, that there was a great deal more to be learned, but could live with that. After he retired, he started studying spiritual matters, focussing on the spirituality of Religions. He joined a local group, still in operation more than 15 years later, called The Forum on Faith and Science and studied many more of the books, videos and other communications from the authors studied. This has been a long-standing habit of his. After a string of five heart attacks, over a short span of 3 ½ years, plus the second of two out-of-body experiences, he took his sceptical attitude up a notch or two and has learned a fair bit about what we do not know, in both science and spirituality. He studied the Ancient Greeks who suggested that Science And Philosophy (spirituality being in that camp) are best seen as two sides of the one coin of all knowledge. He also saw that their warning, that philosophy could not be done using the traditional tools of science, was a legitimate one. While he is a great fan of science, he can now see that it has many limitations. No tool should be used outside of its range of usefulness and science-based tools cannot normally be used in philosophy. Quite a number of the books that the Forum studied were by those in science, or philosophy, who were using tools where they were not useful for the chores at hand. This is never a good situation.
