Religion and Science

Following the Age of Enlightenment in the 18th century, the sciences began upon their triumphal advance. Such a historical view, however, neglects the fact that the principles of enlightenment and science are worshiped only by those who believe in them. Religious world views still shape the conditions of private lives; they establish public expectations and sometimes skepticism towards the sciences. Conversely, scientific insights shake the articles of faith and offer reasons to view things differently. How do we deal with this tension between religion and science?
