Many would disagree with this statment: Religion gave birth to science! I think the details of black holes and especially singularities are similar to theistic views because we don't fully understand what happens in them. The purpose of both Theism and Science is to explain what is not initially understood. They both operate differently and science seems to have explained more. Someday we will understand exactly what happens at the singularity. It won't sound so religious then. When you say "common reference to unity," by "unity" do you mean something like the theory that all things are interconnected?

I would like to apologize now because I realize this doesn't help you at all. Sorry, but I wanted to say it anyway.
