Welcome to All Things Baha’i Discussion Forum on Science and Religion!

Join us at forum.allthingsbahai.net

The purpose of this forum is to explore the relationship between science and religion. Because the forum was initiated and is maintained by members of the Baha’i Faith, it is natural that it will reflect a Baha’i perspective, but that should not be taken to mean that contribution from any religion is discouraged. Far from it: the intent is to have open and productive dialogue. In order to discuss the relationship between science and religion, it is essential to have an accurate understanding of the fundamentals of both, and it is quite possible that there will be different, and at times incompatible, perspectives. Therefore we have established rules that must be followed. See our General Posting Rules

The one discerns and articulates the values unfolding progressively through Divine revelation; the other is the instrumentality through which the human mind explores and is able to exert its influence ever more precisely over the phenomenal world. The one defines goals that serve the evolutionary process; the other assists in their attainment. Together, they constitute the dual knowledge system impelling the advance of civilization. Each is hailed by the Master as an ‘effulgence of the Sun of Truth’.”

In the midst of her professional goals she had a difficult pregnancy which temporarily (...so she thought) would interrupt her coursework. She attempted to return to her studies, but the stork visited a second time. After the birth of their daughter, an unwelcomed visitor arrived a year and a half later, Brain Cancer. After 7 years of fighting, Fernando passed away. (2003) This experience...
