…but the pursuing the truth just might.
There are at least two fundamental, philosophical differences between science and theology that will prevent them from ever peacefully coexisting. The first has to do with the underlying processes that drive them, and the second has to do with the central purposes of their existence.
Michael Gerson has an opinion piece over at the Washington Post, in which he describes what he feels to be a declining faith by the American people in their religious institutions. Although he makes some interesting points, I suspect that the changing demographics he highlights have more to do with the rejection of theology masquerading as religion, than a rejection of religion itself.
