An Indian scientist on science and religion

E.C.G. Sudarshan is a distinguished theoretical physicist, with an Indian background. Over the years he has written several articles about the relationship between science and religion. In 1988 he gave a talk Is modern science closer to religion? which has the intriguing conclusion below.
The end is an allusion to John 4 where Jesus meets the Samaritan woman at the well. It is a little puzzling that Sudarshan quotes Jesus as saying "the Lord should be worshipped in heart and in spirit." Most translations have Jesus saying, God should be worshipped in "spirit and truth".
