This paper suggests that the many advances seen in the science world are causing people to ignore the Church and that even the Church has begun to agree with scientific theories. The paper looks at how, in a world full of facts, people can still side with the stories of the Church and discusses where the world is going from here and why science is slowly taking over religion.

From the Paper:

"The achievements of modern science seem to contradict religion and undermine faith." (4) This sentence opens the article from Newsweek entitled "Science Finds God." However, doesn't this opening statement clearly state that science and God are two completely different faiths. Despite this, there are still a growing number of scientists that believe that "theology and science are entering into a new relationship." (4) I personally believe that science and God are two completely different beliefs. In fact, I am an agnostic, just as the vast majority of scientists are either atheists or agnostics. If scientists base their lives and their beliefs around the fact that there is no supreme power, than why should anyone else believe otherwise?"
