Marcus Borg on scientific worldview

 Historian Marcus Borg, in a book he coauthored with N. T. Wright, The Meaning of Jesus, describes a prevailing scientific  worldview as the “worldview of mass culture in the West” and how it works:

Like all worldviews, it functions in our minds almost unconsciously, affecting what we think possible and what we pay attention to. It is especially corrosive to religion. It reduces reality to the space-time world of matter and energy, thereby making the notion of God problematic and doubtful. It reduces truth to factuality, either scientifically verifiable or historically reliable facts. It raises serious doubts about anything that cannot be accommodated within its framework, including religious phenomena such as prayer, visions, mystical experiences, extraordinary events, and unusual healings.
