Science vs Buddhism

An interesting, well produced video that highlights the strong parallels between the way both science and buddhism describe the world. [Original Source]:



Although the video is slightly laboured, I do find these parallels extremely thought provoking. Buddhism after all stands alone amongst world relgions due to its lack of a supreme deity (Buddha is NOT a God in case you were unaware!) and focuses on truely trying to understand reality. For further reading along similar lines I would recommend both these two books:
