Science + Religion
For centuries Christianity and science have had a complex and often troubled relationship. Most recently, with the rise of ͞the new atheism͟ the occasional skirmishing has broken out into total war. From the perspective of some Christians, science has misleadingly sought to explain the universe without reference to a transcendent being, and has even undermined confidence in the reliability of the Bible. From the perspective of some scientists, the church has often seemed to be an authoritarian institution that hampers free inquiry and promotes superstition. Other Christians and scientists, however, have sought to reconcile the two, seeking ways to integrate their central convictions about the cosmos into a coherent whole. Still other Christians and scientists deny that the two ever could conflict with one another, for they are allegedly dealing with fundamentally different questions. We will examine the diverse ways that science and Christianity have interacted, ranging from mutual hostility to the effort to reformulate Christianity in scientifically acceptable terms.
