Can a person subscribe to both science and religion or are they so incompatible that a person must choose between them?
I know that many religious people pick and choose which parts of science to accept, which is kind of hypocritical.
I know a lot of science people who do that too.
I think it's kind of stopping halfway through an investigation but some people do it.
Darwin, Newton, Galileo... All were very religious & it was their religion that inspired them to seek a deeper understanding of the world.
I believe they are compatible. We humans just know every little about the whole scope of things.
Good to know I'm not alone :)
I had a science professor in college who told the class he believes in creationism. It's possible.
I had a biology professor like that.
They're compatible unless one takes creation stories in a religion's texts, in particular, as literal truth.
Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health & former head of the government arm of the Human Genome Project, is a prime example.
I think both - science is really to study if Gods creation
