Science is both a set of insights about the nature of the universe we live in, and a tool for developing further insights. This section of our web site contains a set of resources developed by SII staff and associates to help provide guidance and information for your efforts to incorporate the insights and process of science into your worldview-building process. Although the ideas expressed in these resources do not necessarily reflect the ideas and positions of SII, you may find them helpful in your process of incorporating insights from science into your worldview. This section is (and will always be!) a work in progress. We'll continue developing this page and its links, as our resources permit. If you have suggestions or would like to help develop some of the materials, please contact us. Meanwhile use these resources to follow your own path through the information you need to help you develop your own answers to questions about your role in the universe.

  • Resources on science integration:
  • Key concepts in science: Areas of science that are likely to significantly affect your worldview.
  • Survey: What properties are important for a universe in which we can find meaning in our lives?
  • Exercises to help you develop your worldview and apply it to your life.
  • Sample worldviews to stimulate your thinking about your own view of the world.
  • Reminders to help you stay connected to the universe we live in.
  • Discussion: Join the discussion board to talk about topics related to science integration. There is also an archive of the previous email discussion list and quotes of the week.
  • Reflection questions to ponder your relationship with science.
  • Journals used as a scientific tool.
  • Archive of miscellaneous material from the past.
  • Cosmology class project: In Todd's Cosmology class, which is geared for non-science majors, the students make a final project. The project is based on something in cosmology that captures the students' interests and can be presented in a variety of ways. Some projects have been a song, a skirt, a game, a poster. One group of students made a humorous pop culture magazine Cosmology (5.7 MB PDF) that we'd like to share with you.

Food for thought:

"Regardless of different personal views about science, no credible understanding of the natural world or our human existence…can ignore the basic insights of theories as key as evolution, relativity, and quantum mechanics." - The Dalai Lama
