Time Magazine Skews Debate Over Science and Religion


Last Monday night, Rabbi Ronald Stern of Stephen S. Wise Temple taught about the interrelationship between science and religion. He believes that overlap between the two disciplines is important for our society and world, but we must be very careful not to misconsture the nature of that overlap. The article on God vs. Science in Time Magazine is an example of how the overlap is misunderstood by both sides and results in science rejecting religion and religion presenting God as the answer to that which science does not understand. Science answers “how” while religion answers “why”. The Intelligent Design proponents falsely argue that the gaps in scientific knowledge can be attributed to God’s intervention. While we may see God’s hand throughout creation, the lack of scientific evidence is not evidence of God’s presence.
