The Spirit, God says in Qur'an: And they ask you (O Muhammad) concerning the (the Spirit); Say: "The (the Spirit) is one of the things, the knowledge of which is only with my Lord. And of knowledge, you (mankind) have been given only a little."
Religion has taken quite the serious beating in the days since science took a foothold. Pretty much, religion still had "Variety of Life" and "After One Dies" trumped. But evolution completely explains Variety of LIfe, so you notice religion attacking evolution almost nonstop, to try and regain what has been taken away from their explanatory canon. It won't happen. Evolution has completely taken away Variety of Life.
After One Dies is trickier. I doubt religion will let that one go any time soon. But I think it's pretty clear that after science has explained phenomena 1 - 14,978, phenomenon 14,979 will fairly certainly NOT be supernatural.
Why is Revelation and Daniel coming true. Near death experiences. The voice I get telling me about things and what to do in emergencies. They have theories, no proof. A man gets hit by lightning and not only SURVIVED but he gains his eyesight? How on earth do they explain that?
Love...joy...peace....other matters of the heart...origin of man....origin of the universe...origin of evil...miracles...
To imagine that science has or can "explain" everything is not even scientific. Many things science has observed or measured; but as far as a clear explanation, that is a very mixed bag and a perpetual pursuit.
And if you read much research or speak to a doctor, for example, we would be surprised how much of the so-called explanation are simply educated guesses, subject to change, pending further research and testing.
At some point, even science simply accepts (sounds like faith) certain laws of nature as true. That does not imply that we can actually "explain" them. To say something happened by "chance" is not an explanation.
Science believes in many things that it can't prove, but are required for science to explain reality: Dark matter Dark energy Reality is rational Reality is knowable The universe is uniform across time and space The principle of causation The very existence of an external universe consisting of matter The laws of logic (especially the law of non-contradiction) The adequacy of language to communicate reality and truth The existence of numbers . This does not mean that science is flawed, just that it can't prove these things. All these have been argued by philosophers and others, and none of them can be proven by the scientific method. In short, they are metaphysical assumptions, not proven facts. . Secondly, Science, by its very nature, is never capable of proving the non-existence of anything. Science can't prove unicorns don't exist. Scientists haven't proven God doesn't exist; they've merely assumed it in many cases. They've foisted this truism on the public, and then operated from that point of view. They act as if they've really said something profound, when all they've done is given you an unjustified opinion.
The healing power of prayer. I've heard about multiple recoveries from sickness and diseases that doctors just couldn't put their finger on. Some doctors that have no faith in God or a god have come out and said things like, "We have no explanation, it has to be a miracle."
Well "phenomenon" needs to be defined first. Depending upon what u mean by that word, u may have inadvertently asked an illogical question. Here is something that science is irrelevant on: "what is the purpose of life" (or in a sense, the "purpose of 'phenomenon'")?
Another point worth making is that if one claims that science is THE source of true knowledge and explanation then science itself cannot explain/prove that assertion itself.
Knowledge is fighting an uphill war and still winning every battle. Religious belief has an unfair advantage in the "explanation business", there are many things that are not yet completely understood in the universe and since the believer is not held to the same strict guidelines as science he is allowed more latitude. If something isn't completely understood it gives the believer a foothold to lay claim on the missing pieces, a Christian can claim Jesus, a Muslim can claim Allah, a Jew can claim Yahweh, etc. Since belief isn't held to the same strict criteria as the scientific method however there is of course no way for anyone to truly claim "their god did it" For that matter anyone could claim Odin, Zeus, Ra, Santa, rainbow pooping unicorns, or an advanced alien species is responsible and each would be as equally valid as the next. We don't know everything yet, but as we've seen, as our knowledge of the universe expands our need for imaginative explanations fades and the numbers of those that rely on fantasy to make there lives complete also fades.
It seems like you hold science and religion in conflict, when they actually go hand in hand. Religion would be empty ceremony and talk if it weren't for the fact that humans have souls which are always trying to find God, our beloved Creator. Looking for signs of God's work in the natural world and trying to apply what we know for the betterment of all is science, but science by itself is empty and unsatisfactory. It's like the difference between just reading a biography on someone, which is really just scraping the surface of who they are, and knowing that person intimately. So, because science is ordered to God and not God to science, what does science really explain in the first place?
