Hi meekerdb

Science is science and religion is religion
and never the two shall meet.

I'm not sure about this Roger.  The goal of a true science and true
religion, in my opinion, is the search of truth.  In the Bahá'í Faith,
it is said that a true science and true religion can never be in

The Pope says the same about Catholicism. But that didn't keep the Church from saying heliocentrism was false, evolution didn't happen, disease is caused by sin,... The problem with religion is that it doesn't test it's 'facts'.

To assert that the earth revolves around the sun is as erroneous
as to claim that Jesus was not born of a virgin.
      --- Cardinal Bellarmine, 1615, letter to Paolo Frascioni

"The earth is flat. Whoever claims it is round is an
atheist deserving of punishment.
  ---Sheik Abdel-Aziz ibn Baaz, the supreme religious authority of
     Saudi Arabia, 1993, quoted by Yousef M. Ibrahim,
      The New York Times, 12 February 1993  Yes, that's 1993 CE, not BCE.

The son of the founder of the Bahá'í Faith said, "If
religion were contrary to logical reason then it would cease to be a
religion and be merely a tradition. Religion and science are the two
wings upon which man's intelligence can soar into the heights, with
which the human soul can progress. ... All religions of the present
day have fallen into superstitious practices, out of harmony alike
with the true principles of the teaching they represent and with the
scientific discoveries of the time.”

We see this same sentiment expressed by Einstein, when he said,
“Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.”
