Very often people believe that science and religion are incompatible. They either believe that science or religion should be completely ignored. They do not seem to see that science and religion are not conflicting beliefs they are simply different ways for people to understand the Universe. Science attempts to understand everything using reason and observation. Religion gets it’s understanding through its prophets who commune with God as well as through direct communion with God. Galileo Galilei once said:
“I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.”
People tend to see the world as black and white, good and evil, and them versus us, and sometimes it is that way. But what they fail to see is that being different doesn’t make something or someone evil, it only makes them different. Science and religion aren’t opposites they are simply different ways of accomplishing the same thing. Science can’t prove or disprove the validity of religion and religion can’t prove or disprove the validity of science.
