For a long time, it was thought that science banishes the mystery from life, giving rational explanations that dismiss the wonder that people used to feel from their physical existence. Whole theories of secularism have been built around what sociologist Max Weber called the “Disenchantment” of nature.
But, as I show in my book Post-Christian, contemporary science–especially quantum physics–increases the mystery of physical existence! The more we learn, the more mind-blowing the universe becomes! Now we know that a particle can be in two states or locations at once; that with two entangled particles, what you do to one will happen to the other no matter how far apart they are; observing or measuring (even by machine) particles changes their reality; among many others.
