from SciTech Daily:
Science and Buddhism, according to the Dalai Lama, share a strong empirical basis and are surprisingly compatible [the story]
"Just because a current theory or philosophy of science fails to account for a phenomenon does not mean that science itself should be abandoned."
The author has described "a God of gaps", where the religious may fill in any gaps in scientific theory with a religious concept. He doesn't like it. I, however, see its merits. Why not label something that does not have a scientic theory as religious? Of course, there are depths to scientific theory that the layperson cannot even fathom. At this point it seems to me that much of a layperson's belief in the unknown, either scientific or religious, is all religious.
