There are 2 modes of thought. Scientific and Religious. Science delivers
fact. Religion delivers opinion. All fact is opinion. Therefore science
and religion are one and the same.
What is God? God is a feeling we have which places in perspective the
connection we feel to the body of the human race. God is thought, God is
nature, God IS. We are God. God is us. All modes of religious and
scientific thought that consider God, consider the one thing in the same way.
