Science and religion

Should enlighten one another

December 9th 2015
For centuries, we have witnessed endless battles between religion and science in the West. For a long time, religion was powerful enough to win the battle. And then, little by little, the situation reversed: as science progressed, it became more dominant and, for many, was even able to undermine religion’s foundations, so that religion was forced to beat a retreat. In reality however, whatever progress science makes, it will not be able to supplant or destroy religion, any more than religion has been able to oppose the development of science. The two are connected and, if correctly understood , can only reinforce and enlighten one another. Those who seek to separate them or get them to compete with each other are making a mistake. How can they imagine that the Lord would have introduced two incompatible realities into the universe, when he himself created it, and into human beings, when he made them in his image? They simply need to become aware of the laws that govern the physical and the spiritual worlds, for these laws are in essence identical.
