Thoughtful religion and science have never been at odds. Each embarks on a search for truth and meaning through careful observation and method. Ritual, discipline, and poetry infuse the naturalist’s lab and the pastor’s study; reverence, wonder, and awe their common language. Don’t believe those who say otherwise.
