Half Knowledge is dangerous.Anyone who fights against Science for religion has not completely understood Science.Similarly,anyone who fights against religion for science has not completely understood the morale of religion.
Majority of people believe in a god with a form & the worship of idols.While everyone can enjoy their right to believe in something ,but in that sense,religion has always been the grounds of division between two humans because god(with a form) of two religion will never be same.The problem becomes worse when societies fight against one another on the basis of whose God/religion is more powerful/correct.
On the other hand,Science & Religion point towards one & the same thing.They are both trying to explain that mystical force which is behind the creation of grand cosmos.They are like two different languages but speaking the same thing.New discoveries are made in Atomic Physics which prove what religion has always espoused–human beings are far more extra ordinary than an assemblage of bones & flesh.While discoveries of Science are very recent,some religions in the world are much older than 5000 years.And both talk about the constitutional position of human in respect to the Force/Energy responsible for All that Is.
I have never heard someone defining it so correct than Dr.Wernher von Braun.
Dr.Braun says,”Science & Religion,when properly understood,are not antagonistic pursuits.On the contrary,they are sister disciplines.Through Science,one learns more about Creation,where as,by virtue of study of Religion,one gains a greater insight into the Creator.By employing the tools of Science,man attempts to harness the forces of nature which surround him;through Religion,on the other hand,he endeavors to control the forces of nature which are at work within him.”
And that is why those days are gone when it was Science vs Religion.Now we can understand both of them & use it to our advantage rather than self-destruction.
This post is not meant to harm the values & beliefs of any religion in any way.
