Reconciling science and religion?

  (18 August 09)

Jerry Coyne, a professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolution at the University of Chicago, has written an excellent analysis of efforts to effect a reconciliation between science and religion. He has done this by way of reviewing two new books by scientists who are practising Christians, both of whom attempt to demonstration the needed reconciliation.

Coyne shows the failure in their attempts, and in the process examines the many aspects of the science-religion conflict. It is a 12 page piece but well worth the read to find Coyne's view that the reconciliation is impossible, at least with traditional Christianity, Islam and Judaism.

The article was published in The New Republic in February this year.
