Here’s the best argument for religion I have ever seen/heard, made by one of the best religious thinkers of our time. There is a lot that Christians can learn from the Jews in terms of the way we actually practice religion.
He says this at the end of the video:
In the end of the day, the first lesson any philosophy student ever learns is, facts are one thing and values are another. When all the facts are in, the question of value still remains. And we will never get that from Science, which is brilliant at establishing fact but cannot ordain values. And therefore for that, we have to look ultimately, I think, at the ultimate itself: God Himself. Or at the very least, if you don’t believe, at least accept the wisdom that has been honed and refined through three and a half thousand years, and has brought freedom, dignity and hope to the world.
New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
8 O taste and see that the Lord is good;
happy are those who take refuge in him.
