twentieth century

A Quote by Huston Smith on astronomy, e mc2, einstein, immortality, physics, religion, science, theologians, twentieth century, and worldview

As the twentieth century began, science equaled a materialistic worldview. As the twenty-first century began, the worldview of science, at least of physics and astronomy, may have traded place with that of religion. Consider Einstein's famous equation E = mc2. Nothing of matter dies but continues on in another form, elsewhere. The church divines and theologians for two thousand years have devised arguments and "proofs" of immortality but nothing equal to this.

Tom Robbins (1936 -)
