Can Religious Faith and Science Co-exist?
Religious Faith (Theology) and Science Can Co-exist.
Faith and science address inherently different subject matter and can therefore co-exist.
Religious faith motivates science.
Religion can exist alongside science if religion is accepted to be a diversion from reality. This is already demonstrated in that Christianity and it's Bible is not taken to be the literal truth anymore.
There are individuals that believe both in theological and scientific propositions. These individuals see no conflict between them.
As the dynamics and the relationship between science and faith changes, both can coexist at different points in human history.
Religious faith promotes unscientific thought.
Faith and science both make fundamental claims about the world we live in, but use different methods for arriving at those claims. Therefore, conflict will always arise between the two.
So much can be explained by science, religious faith is not a necessary tool for understanding life.
