"but a tendency with some to be, as I see it, so steeped in science and materialism that something vital gets lost along the way."

But that's an un-called for insult. Why should being steeped in science and materialism lead to something getting lost along the way? It's a line that trips off many peoples' tongues, always those on your side of the fence but I've never heard anyone explain it. Being steeped in science makes "belief" or "faith" harder to maintain but not understanding or appreciation.

Seems to me that if that's your stance - that logic, rationality and proof are the enemies of deeper understanding then you're calling for "faith" in exactly the same way as Christians do. I'm sure you know how annoying it is when some of them say the world WAS made in six days. Bet you'd call for proof.
