Science And Religion Are Incompatible

Originally by David Holcberg, via ARI Media,

Dear Editor:

The Kansas Board of Education has redefined science to make room for the supernatural. But changing definitions will not alter the fact that science and religion are incompatible.

Science seeks natural explanations for natural phenomena. It does so by logical inferences from observable facts and experimentation. Science relies on reason and evidence.

Religion, in contrast, relies on supernatural "explanations" for natural phenomena. It demands belief unsupported by evidence and/or contrary to facts. Religion relies on faith.

Just as evolution and creationism are mutually exclusive and naturally pitted against each other, so are science and religion. Changing definitions will not change reality.
