Science & Religion (2005)


Both science and religion have tried to explain basic questions of human existence. While the debate between science and religion has traditionally been a philosophical question, advances in areas such as quantum physics and cosmology in contrast with the teaching of creationism in many schools have fuelled increased public interest and debate.

While Kepler and Darwin first made it possible for philosophers to understand the physical world without God, Einstein then introduced new questions that science could no longer explain by itself. As the series demonstrates, there is now a growing convergence between these two world views.
