Science and Religion

To properly communicate a belief sometimes we need to phrase it in a very exact way. That isn’t always easy to do, and we can end up frustrated.

Thankfully some great thinkers and speakers have preceded us, and they manage to sum-up our thoughts in a few powerful words. Martin Luther King, Jr said:

“Science investigates; religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge, which is power; religion gives man wisdom, which is control. Science deals mainly with facts; religion deals mainly with values. The two are not rivals. They are complementary.”

This isn’t the MLK quote that I want to use today to mark Martin Luther King Day in the USA. It’s here so that next time a friend wants to tell me that science is wrong I have the right words so that I don’t need to flail around, or cause offense!
