This paper discusses the disagreements that often arise between science and religion. It questions the reasons for these disagreements and why there cannot be some sort of intermediary between them. The paper examines a few areas of overlap between science and religion in an attempt to more adequately advocate that each side work toward a more amiable conclusion.
From the Paper:"At the core of the issue, it is simply impossible to prove conclusively the existence or non-existence of a God. "Does God exist?" is, therefore, an impossible question given our limitations of knowledge. What can be examined, however, is the intricate balance between religion and science and how philosophy can be evoked to bridge the invisible gap. In analyzing the overlap between the areas, it can be found that a common ground does, in fact, exist in what are commonly considered to be polar opposites. Rather, both are engaged in the search of final, absolute truth. In all probability, neither will ever find it, but the delicate interplay between the two factors does help shed light on some of the unanswerable questions that humanity ponders."
