Science and religion are two different worldviews that involve different methods of attaining truth, one based on evidence using a scientific method to examine the natural world and the other based on belief in certain religious precepts often involving a supernatural dimension based on a holy book in some cases, and on the authority of religious leaders. This book examines the nature of religion and the role it plays in society along with unresolved problems that have existed for some time. The nature of science is then discussed along with the scientific method and problems with science that have not been resolved. The origins of science and religion are then examined and the relationship of these two worldviews and the relationship of science to the supernatural. Finally, the future of religion is examined along with its ongoing relationship to science. The real battle between science and religion involves the question of who gets to decide the truth about the world we live in and our status as human beings in this world. The answer to that question is not obvious but has enormous implications for human life on a planet that is under stress and may not be able to support human life for much longer as our actions have consequences that are now becoming all too apparent.
