"It's a well-worn truth that the modern world is built upon science and technology. But this truth doesn't dominate everyday life as much as one might think. Science is materialistic, and it explains the world through objective data. People lead their lives, at least partly, apart from materialism. The spiritual side of life exists and always has, which defies objective data. ... One of the easiest precepts from Jesus to follow is 'render unto Caesar what is Caesar's, and render unto God what is God.' If you substitute 'science' or 'materialism' for Caesar, everyone does exactly that, compartmentalizing personal and spiritual experience in a separate box from iPads, microwaves, and space shuttles."
