O knjizi - SCIENCE AND RELIGION - SYNERGY NOT SKEPTICISM (eng.)

This book focuses on Science and Religion: Synergy not Skepticism. Understanding and responsibly managing the complex relationships between science and religions, as the chapters in this volume attest, has been of central concern to both the science and faith communities for many centuries. Some religious communities and traditions are extreme in the other direction, dismissing science, for example, the science of evolution. This book consists of 28 chapters. The first step in understanding the complex, sometimes fraught, relationships between science and faith communities is to be clear about the nature of science and its limits, a point emphasized by many of the contributors to this volume. The second step in understanding the relationships between science and religions. Religions are much more complex human activities than science, because they do not depend on only one source of human experience, evidence-based reasoning, but many sources. Truth is probabilistic in science with some truths decided, e.g. evolution and the heliocentric motion of the planets around the star we call the Sun. Truth in religions is the revealed word of God. The chapters in this volume are exemplars of how to achieve this responsible management of the complex relationships between science and the many, diverse religions of the world.
