The more new technical solutions appear on our planet, the more scientific discoveries and facts proving that inexplicable aspects have real evidence, the louder the debate about the compatibility of science and religion. There is a tendency to argue that science and religion can really help each other. But a number of experts believe that these two completely opposite aspects represent incompatible views of the world.
Science can be thought of as a set of tools used to search for truth about the Universe with the understanding that truths are temporary. A philosopher Daniel Dennett believes that religion is a social system where participants declare their belief in a supernatural agent, whose approval should be sought.
Many religions do not fit that approval, but they fill such an idea with themselves, the Abrahamic faiths of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Both religion and science are based on statements of truth about the Universe, which are statements about reality. You can hardly consider yourself a Christian, if you do not believe in the Resurrection of Christ, a Muslim, if you do not believe that the angel Gabriel dictated the Koran to Muhammad, a Mormon, if you do not believe that the angel Moroni showed Joseph Smith the golden plates, which became the Book of Mormon.
But what about to accept faith and not be an anti-scientific person? Many experts concluded that it should be argued that any faith is compatible with science. But officially it is a misconception, since science and religion are in constant conflict.
It is based on methods that decide what is true and what is fiction. In science, faith without proof is the confirmation of the invisible. Different religions often make conflicting statements about faith.
There are over 4,000 religions on the planet and their truths are completely different. For example, Muslims and Jews reject the truth that Jesus was the son of God. New sects reject what others believe to be true.
Science, in turn, succeeded in understanding the Universe, but the method of using faith did not led to evidence of divinity, the existence of gods in the sky, a hellish place, or heaven in outer space. Thus, the war between science and religion is a conflict about whether you have good reason to believe in what each person does, whether faith sees a vice or a virtue.
