To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive forms - this knowledge, this feeling, is at the center of true religion.

When will the age of uncertainty be over?

'When will the age of uncertainty be over?'

Never, and may that last. I love learning. This quote is appropriate because those who, like me, believe in scientific evidence and trial and error, sometimes 'disconnect' from our spiritual selves.

But 'don't worry, Ma, it's life and life only'. Said by Bob, not by me :-).

Greetings from London.

Ah, I love that.
To me, the opposite of faith is not doubt, but certainty.

Oh, very deep. I never knew Einstein to be so eloquent.

I was surprised when I came to the end of the quote and saw it was from Einstein. I forget about the elegant and eloquent side of him.

This is just one of the many reasons that Albert is a hero of mine :-).

Oh he knew about the things unseen. His great scientific knowledge was rooted deeply in his beliefs, it's what allowed him such great success.

Yoli,
Like you, missing our M and Q.
The story in thier news paper, which I found on line is incomprehensible....Talk about the Age of Uncertainty!

This is great Yoli!
Always at the end of science, lies a perfection that mystifies!
The hairs on a cheetah, the center of a flower, the miracle of life!
Happy weekend to you dear Friend!
Also to your your family and pretty parrots too!
