By Jonathan Sacks
Impassioned, erudite, completely researched, and wonderfully reasoned, The nice Partnership argues not just that technology and faith fit, yet that they supplement every one other—and that the realm wishes either.
“Atheism merits greater than the recent atheists,” states Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, “whose technique includes criticizing faith with no realizing it, quoting texts with out contexts, taking exceptions because the rule, complicated folks trust with reflective theology, abusing, ridiculing, and demonizing non secular religion and maintaining it accountable for the good crimes opposed to humanity. faith has performed damage; I recognize that. however the healing for undesirable faith is nice faith, no longer no faith, simply because the remedy for undesirable technological know-how is sweet technology, now not the abandonment of science.” Rabbi Sacks’s counterargument is that faith and technological know-how are the 2 crucial views that permit us to work out the universe in its 3-dimensional intensity. technological know-how teaches us the place we come from. faith explains to us why we're the following. technological know-how is the hunt for rationalization. faith is the hunt for which means. there were instances whilst faith attempted to dominate technology. And there were instances, together with our personal, while it truly is believed that we will research all we have to learn about which means and relationships via biochemistry, neuroscience, and evolutionary psychology. during this interesting examine the interdependence of faith and technology, Rabbi Sacks explains why either perspectives are tragically wrong.
