Last week, one of our contributors wrote an excellent article entitled, “Faith vs. Reason”.  Undoubtedly scientists create a false polarity by opposing faith with reason, particularly when so many scientific theories require a large measure of faith.  As Thomas well pointed out, the religiously-minded who extract reason from faith often substitute feelings/emotion.  These supposedly indicate or manifest human spirituality.  If human spirituality is either defined as or confined to those terms, what makes us different than any other creature which manifests those feelings/emotions?
