> I think that there is a tendency for man to wage war against uncertainty. However, some of the greatest twentieth century physicists were comfortable with uncertainty. Certainly, Heisenberg must have been, although I'm not absolutely certain.

I think there is a tension between accepting uncertainty, and yet still seeking to learn what is not yet known. (That is, feeling okay about not knowing everything without becoming a total slacker.)

> Spirituality can act as a bridge between the two - if you let it. I don't see any conflict between spiritualism and atheism.

Question: how do you define spirituality? I've mostly heard it used as a thin veil for religion.
