Science and faith: are they really at war?
by Ted Peters

Are science and faith really at war? If so, who are the combatants? For many scientists and many people of faith, the warfare model is misleading, a distortion. Peaceful ally models include (1) the Two Books, according to which both science and religion reveal God’s mind; (2) the Two Languages, according to which science and religion speak two different languages; (3) ethical alliance, especially in genetics and climate change; and (4) creative mutual interaction, a shared exploration of reality. Make peace, not war.
