A conversation between two strangers took place today on a Q train going from Manhattan to Brooklyn. Man A commented on the book in Man B’s hand and a conversation about science VS. religion came out of it. It was insightful, free floating exchanges of views, knowledges, tradition and intellectual possibilities. They didn’t agree on most views, but they kept going, jumping from Buddhism to Southern Baptist’s take on God, than moves into the God particle, and back into who is really in charge of our lives and the good and evil organized religions have caused in history. It was friendly, polite and above all, New York. This is why I love this city. In time like this, we need more intelligent conversation about science, religion, across different lines, different races, different politics and follow facts and science above all, yet keep room for our hearts.
