The subject of origins – of where we, Earth, and the universe come from – is one that has been considered by many religions since time immemorial. Science, Westminster Symposium logoas a relatively recent actor on the intellectual stage, also considers these topics, coming up with answers at variance with those of most religions, including Christianity. How do these two approaches differ? Are there similarities? And is there an uncrossable divide between the two? The answer is not just philosophically interesting, but directly relevant to decisions being made about what to teach in public school science courses.
