Philosophy/ art, music taught me ways to view universe, that were wise to those fields long before science were, and science does actually acknowledge these views.
I find it very fascinating. All these different people, view points often cross intersect, they are all the same, really. No matter how different their views appear to be, I see that one is often just the abstraction, or cousin of another.
I watch music videos, artist renderings, even if the intention is direct/ indirect all these beliefs, ideas can be correlated.
I see topics in both science and philosophy that correlate all the time, even if from a naive sense, the most abstract artistic "anti-ideas" are true ideas. Creativity that rules over certain ideas , that imagination should be no less valued in artistic genius than it is in scientific genius. Often the two have coincided. Many religious men throughout history have made famous scientists, as well as artists.
So very often I see reflections of beliefs spread throughout different medium, that actually turn out to be indifferent , it's just the ideas that spread throughout those different medium that distract us from the actual message we've picked up on.
So, yes, I am acknowledging all the contextual differences of religions , sciences, arts, but as foreign languages have symmetry so do all these things.
There's several beliefs, and beyond those things their true belief.
And it doesn't matter what came first, they are all the same, just demonstrated differently based on how they've been licensed.

Don't get me wrong, though. I am not exactly an agnostic. I've met women and men who took great strength and compassion from their religion, and about the most impressive of them was a successful chemist - in all honesty, I do not perceive religion and science in that much opposition. Nonetheless, I think it is high time our religions gave up their exclusivity claims concerning their knowledge of the way to bliss, and the violence that goes with it.
