Over the weekend, I read an article about the inevitable conflict between science and religion. Speaking as a minority of one, such conflict does not and cannot exist.
Science by definition is “true knowledge,” and true (perfect) knowledge is divine. All knowledge relates us to the infinite through understanding. The antaganism is man made. Similarly there is no conflict between spirit and matter. We find in matter the manifestation of the spirit. These man made conflicts are what we are called to overcome.
