Is there a contradiction between science and religion? Is belief in God irrational in the light of our scientific age? If there is found to be a conflict between religion and rationality, one of the two must be deeply flawed.

It is often claimed that in the light of the considerable technological and scientific advancements of the modern age, rationality in itself is sufficient to totally guide man in all aspects of life, and sincere belief in God has become not only unnecessary, but also illogical due to the apparent discrepancies between the worlds of valid scientific study and the acceptance of faith.

Are God and science, therefore, friends or foes?
