The Evolutionary Argument Against Naturalism

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter argues that there is superficial conflict but deep concord between science and theistic belief, and superficial concord and deep conflict between science and naturalism. Given that naturalism is at least a quasi-religion, there is indeed a science/religion conflict, all right, but it is not between science and theistic religion: it is between science and naturalism. That is where the conflict really lies.

Keywords: religion; science; naturalism; conflct
