Emerging green synergy in the science/religion relationship: from conflict to potentially planet-saving cooperation


The science/religion relationship has proved to be of great interest, given the crushing economic burden of global climate change on the insurance industry, and the close association of science denial and climate change denial in some religious communities.  Below is the abstract of an article by Dr. Robert A. Michaels [bam@ramtrac.com] recently published in the Environmental Claims Journal.

Abstract

Nature has inspired awe throughout history, stimulating scientific study often conflicting with theology.  Conflict is manifest as promotion of creationism and its euphemisms in school curricula, and in science denial, recently in the U.S. Government.  Unification, however, is an emerging reality for the science/ religion relationship, driven by convergent evolution of each toward saving our shared planet from ourselves.  No longer can religion deny science, nor science overlook the power of religious institutions toward achieving our common existential goal.
