Science and Religion

Science and religion both involve questions of knowledge: questions of what we claim to know and how we came to know it, questions of what we do not yet know and whether it can be known. At different times in history, and according to different thinkers, science's claims to knowledge have been seen as complementary to, or in competition with, or in conflict with, or simply of a wholly different kind than those of religion. The Science and Religion thread will combine the perspectives of several different disciplines on these questions of knowledge and belief, both historically and in the present.

This thread can be 9 or 18 hours.
