Science and religion are often said to be irreconcilable. Are they? Can believers be intellectually responsible? Do they need to be? How strong, really, is the demand that religious faith submit to the authority of the empirical? Does that demand make science just another “god of power” for us to worship? Are there other ways to view faith so its ultimate obligation is not to correspond with the intrinsic nature of reality. but with other criteria such as the obligation to love?
