I believe that if your religious values do not run in parallel with your political, social, and economic values, then you're a hypocrite whether you believe you are, or not.
I also discovered recently, as recently as July 2006, that this is more than just an opinion, being that I am the Father of the new field of Analytic theology, and I hope to write an article about that in the future.
I also believe that religion is important, because it often shapes everything else, including the arts and sciences. Analytic theology strangely enough, is a branch of theology which shows connections to many different fields, especially the social sciences.
This too is true: the reason science and the scientific method were born and nurtured almost exclusively in the West, has a lot more to do with religion and religious ideas than most scientists are confortable admitting.
The opposite side of the coin is true as well: wherever Western science has had a significant impact on non-Western societies, one finds that the locals have also begun to accept Western religious ideas in a substantial or significant way. Christianity has gone from a leader-driven phase, to a scripture-driven one. Western science, on the other hand, is still in the leader-driven phase, and has yet to move towards a more scientific literature-driven one.
You can say I'm a believer in holism, in the interconnectedness of things. I believe that science's potential is only embryonic at this stage, since scientists themselves are too attached to some untrue or unproven dogmas of their own.
Good and unbiased thinking will be the basis of tomorrow's superscience, not hyper-rationalism. When that happens, I believe that scientists will have interesting conversations with theologians, and theologians will have interesting conversations with scientists, and the two will even compare notes.
