    Is their ability scientifically analyze impacted if they don't analyze their faith?

    •  Keeping the two separate is paramount... (0+ / 0-)

      ...to being able to analyze situations based in empirical fact without bias.  Faith is more of a spiritual journey based on self-reflection and meditation.  I am a faith-based "free thinker" and believe that it is possible.

      •  Separate but unequal (0+ / 0-)

        No question it is possible to keep them separate. But is it rational?

        Why should some ideas be excluded from scientific analysis.

        •  The same way (0+ / 0-)

          we don't look for the effect of fairies and unicorns on scientific experiments.

          As long as there is no expectation that "God will do it," rational experimentation can proceed. As soon as you introduce an unquantifiable, non-repeatable, non-falsifiable element to an experiment, you're no longer doing science.

          "Then a miracle happens," is not science.
