A basic principle of Quantum Theology:
we must begin with the whole, the Unmanifest Source
of All that is within each part.
The obsession of science with objectivity/analysis/data
tells us nothing about reality and life
in its wholeness/depth/relationality –
these are mysterious forces of attraction in Nature
that cannot be explained by science alone.
Life transcends not only science/rationality/thought
but also our other big obsession, the pursuit of money:
play transcends money by reminding us
we are not just workers
and art transcends money by helping us see
hidden and deeper aspects of reality
than just producing and consuming.
Christianity became overly-rational
to oppose the over-rationalism of the Enlightenment –
in Europe this became highly academic theology
and in America fundamentalism – an over-reaction
to religious rationalism – but it left out reality
which includes everything – including inclusivity/
environmentalism/and other religions.
Some rationalism in religion is beneficial:
the Parliament of the World’s Religions
developed a “Global Ethic” – ethical guidelines
for all humans, religious or not
but this does not mean “a global ideology/
a single unified religion beyond all religions/
or a religion that dominates all others.”
The Parliament recognizes God’s love of diversity
and the Dalai Lama with his impish sense of humor
said that to have good interreligious dialogue
we need to honor the diversity of religions:
“To try to be Christian and Buddhist at the same time
is like putting a yak’s head on a sheep’s body.”
In short: it is impossible to reduce everything
to science/money/one religion.
