Logic and Uncertainties in Science and Religion book
Science, with its experiments and logic, tries to understand the order or structure of the universe. Religion, with its theological inspiration and reflection, tries to understand the purpose or meaning of the universe. One might think that religion and its theology have a patent on revelatory experiences. The logic of human inquiry is trustworthy only if nature is itself logical. Science operates with the faith that human logic can in the long run understand nature’s laws and that they are dependable. One of the most significant points of shared interest between science and theological reflection is concern for the origin of the universe. The language of science may appear lifeless or deadening to some poets; but the scientist himself or herself is often sensitive to the beauty of nature, immensity of the space, and the complexity of the material world.
