Assessing Acceptability

There can be no meaningful reconciliation of science and religion. I'll tell you why. For one thing, their methods are diametrically opposed. Science admits it has no final answers, while religion claims to have them. And furthermore science, despite its excesses, has gone far to liberate the human spirit; religion would stifle it.
