Where did we come from? What are we? What is reality? Is there a God? What is our fate after death?
Spirituality focuses on these big questions. Does science debunk spiritual teachings? We must remind ourselves that opinions from some scientists may not be a theory. Scientists hold opinions, dogma, and prejudices like the rest of us. When I ask has science debunked spirituality, I refer to scientific theories generally accepted by the vast majority of those in that field. However, even a scientific theory is a belief and might later be proved wrong or needed to be modified (as illustrated below).
Where did we come from?
The 20th-century begun with the scientific community believing that the universe was always its current size. Astronomers were not aware of other galaxies in the universe. Later, it was discovered that the universe was expanding–even Einstein was surprised. This resulted in what is called the “Big Bang Theory” contending that our universe begun from a dot in space.
No one knows what came before this dot. Cosmologists suggested that our universe will stop expanding someday and contract to a singularity starting a new cycle. Others believe that our universe is just part of a much larger universe perhaps infinite in size. Some physicists believe in parallel universes. So where did we come from? The only general agreement is that all the stuff of our world was stuffed into this dot; however, faith is required that someday there will be agreement as to what preceded it.
I don’t think that the Big Bang Theory qualifies as debunking material.
What are we?
Scientists are in agreement: we and our world are made up of energy. What they don’t agree on is what to call the basic stuff of the universe or how to describe it. One popular explanation is called String Theory describing the basic ingredients as vibrating strings of energy. However, many physicists question whether this is even a theory because it might be not testable. No debunking material here (except debunking materialists’ assertions that materials like atoms explain our world). In fact, it confirms ancient religious and spiritual teachings that everything is energy.
What is reality? Is there a God?
Since I have articles on each of these questions, I will give the bottom line: science has definitely not debunked spirituality. With 96% of the universe missing, the scientific picture of reality is inscrutable. Biology professor Richard Dawkins holds his own opinions pronouncing God is a delusion. I believe that I exposed Dawkins’ delusion in my article.
What is our fate after death?
Now we come to the end–death. But is it the end? Science holds no theory which debunks an afterlife. Wait a minute you might say: what about the materialists who allege that since we are but atoms and molecules, when we die nothing survives? Materialism has been debunked although many people and scientists still cling to it. Recently two 21st-century studies revealed tantalizing evidence for an afterlife. No debunking here; but stay tuned, scientists are attempting more experiments which might shed light on the afterlife.
Healing the rift: bridging the gap between science & spirituality
In the 20th- and 21st-century several physicists have proclaimed the universe as mental and spiritual. The multibillion dollar experiments of physicists in the next few years may provide more ammunition for science to debunk the dogma which shrouds the spiritual.
