"Nothing happens in contradiction to nature"

I was watching the X-Files the other day, and I came across this gem of a quote.

Nothing happens in contradiction to nature, only in contradiction to what we know of it. -Dana Scully

To me this summarizes the relationship between Science and Religion. Just because science cannot prove that there is a spirit, doesn't mean that it isn't so. Science has just not reached the point where it can study the spirit. This can be applied to all other gospel concepts that cannot be proven through science.

I'm sure there are others who beleive this, but I love the quote. I'll probably be using it in my signature on discussion forums.

The Truth is out there.

I think that is pretty much Mormon miracle philosophy. It is a unique, but not unheard of, proclomation of the relationship of science and religion.
