I think they both have merit when done with conscience, heart, and moral value. (I believe in Spirituality over religion atau over either of these~) BECAUSE, I could, if need be, live without science but I could not atau would not want to live without my God.
Religion and science both play important roles. I think religion is important to lay as your foundation. It will determine what anda believe about yourself and about people in general. Morals are very important. Sience without a moral base can have catastophic effects. All anda need to do is look at Nazi medical research to see how bad the results can be. Science with a moral base, helps build mankind. It gives understanding on how the universe works. Science has changed the quaility of life people can enjoy. Religion and Science are to different fields of study. When conducted with a fair open mind, I see no contradiction between the two.
They're both important. I've tried believing in various stuff, but my scientific mind always finds an explanation to weird stuff I've been trying to believe. I guess it depends on each person. Do anda think the pope thinks science is lebih important than religion ? And a scientific working on the Big Bang theory, do anda really think he believes that a God created the world ? Both are important because both give jawapan to soalan people have always been asking themselves, whether those jawapan are true atau not.
