Re: The Relationship Between Science and Religion

Personally, I don't care what faith or beliefs that people do or don't have. It has nothing to do with science. People can believe what they want, no matter what their personal faiths. I only object to religion when it tries to interfere with the operation of science. I only object when religion tries to dictate what is taught in public schools. Religions can teach anything they want to people in their places of worship or their homes or private schools, but that's where their authority should end.

Science can't tell religion what to do or believe, and religion shouldn't tell science what to do. The murky area is what it considered ethical or not. Since there are hundreds of faiths, there can never be one single viewpoint of what religions might consider ethical. Therefore, the society as a whole will have that input, not just one religion or another.
