In order to appreciate the real-life dynamics between religion and science, we need to get down to individual and group experience. Scholars, theologians, and scientists engaged in the religion and science dialogue often focus on a very theoretical and abstract analysis that suggests the application of an essentialist approach both to religion and science. The debate addresses the questions of whether religion is a threat to science or science is a threat to religion; whether they are separate or overlapping; whether one can be used in support of the other. Moreover, the interest seems to be directed toward questions that religion and science ask rather than answers they are believed to provide, with ‘why?’ reserved for religion and ‘how?’ for science.
