The Reality of the Relationship Between Science & Religion

 It’s interesting how easy it is to demonstrate the most popular ideas people hold about the relationship are incorrect.

Science and theology do interact, and are not friends or foes, but simply different methods to gain knowledge about reality. Picture two separate cameras providing their respective views of reality. The really interesting stuff happens when both cameras overlap in their views.

  • Doesn’t science conflict with religion?
  • Or maybe these two fields cannot interact?

Unfortunately, the views most often heard on this issue are inaccurate, and the reality is much more interesting

If two sources of knowledge are valid, meaning they both provide unique, useful, and accurate information, which can be demonstrated for both science and theology, then you can check if these sources do or do not interact. Next, if these sources do interact, or both give us a view of the same part of reality, then we can ask if they agree or disagree, because this can tell us something about both science and theology.

What has been found in the intersection of these views? Read more by downloading the PDF below, or if you already recognize the relationship between science and each different belief system, then you can continue to our next section Evidence unlike any other.
