Science and religion

Science and religion are often seen to be in conflict. But it seems to me that they are more complementary. They ask different questions and produce different results.

Science asks what is, and what can be. It has increased our longevity and general health but has done little to increase our happiness and it has also increased our destructive powers.

Religion asks what is important, and what should be. It has certainly given us a lot to argue about — even fight wars about — but it has also given many people a sense of meaning and happiness, and brought a lot of good into the world.

Ghandi was a Hindu but he said he believed in the fundamental truth of all the world’s great religions.
