Lions Roar : September 2005
SHAMBHALA SUN SEPTEMBER 2005 5 3 Against this is placed organized religion’s entirely different set of methodological presuppositions. What holy seekers are looking for are transcendent truths, and their methodology is invariably one of individual search and discovery. There is routinization to be sure—meditation, prayer, ritual behav- ior—but nobody is going to confuse the compulsive calcula- tions in a laboratory with the drama of worship or self- knowledge advancement in a temple, church, synagogue, or mosque. Believers aren’t conducting an experiment to see if their beliefs make sense. They don’t send particular moments of enlightenment out to peers to see if colleagues in spiritual- ity can figure out a hundred ways in which they were kidding themselves. They don’t risk being rebuked if others don’t achieve the same sense of the sacred as they on any given day. If there is contradiction between their religion’s truths and others, it is not a question of fraud. Rather it is that, as the New Testament has it, “in my father’s house there are many dwelling places.” A computer-generated representation of DNA. A DNA molecule is composed of two outer strands of atoms twisted into a helical shape, with cross-linking nucleotide bases between them. The sequence of bases makes up the genetic code.
