• What we’ll do
Faith vs. Fact: Why Science and Religion are Incompatible by Jerry Coyne
A book by biologist Jerry Coyne concerning the relationship between science and religion. Coyne argues that religion and science are incompatible, by surveying the history of science and stating that both religion and science make claims about the universe, yet only science is open to the fact that it may be wrong. Coyne was astonished that after having published his book, Why Evolution is True, the proportion of creationists in America still remained between 40-46%. He felt that faith was the reason that kept them from accepting the facts and evidence for evolution.
