Can Science and Religion Co-Exist?

Science and religion have a notoriously fractious relationship, each spouting fundamental “truths” from either side of an ideologically inscribed line.

CHR Comment: Reporter Jeffrey Marlow describes an interview with Monsignor Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, the Chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, who appears in the National Geographic series, A History of God.

The differences between science and religion predate Christianity as described by the philosopher Bertrand Russell in his History of Western Philosophy. The same dialogue/argument occurred among Greek philosophers. So Christianity did not give rise to the tensions but inherited them from earlier thinkers.
