The interaction of science and religion: an update on the conflict
Aragón Vargas, Luis Fernando
MetadataShow full item record
In this discussion of the interaction between science and religion, I review some evidence for and against the conflict thesis to show that there is no inherent contradiction between them, but rather an expected tension. I analyze why it is not desirable or even possible to keep these two cultural forces strictly independent from each other, even though it is important to understand and respect their distinctive elements and methods. I discuss two general approaches to the integration of religion and science and argue why both are doomed to cause more harm than good. Finally, I present a model for dialogue between these disciplines and for the integration of both areas in the life of each individual scientist.
