Why do many people believe they must choose between science and religion?
Solution 17RQ Both science and religion are very complex aspect of our life. They can not be separated and isolated from one another. But there are some differences in science and religion. Scientific fact are based on reason and evidence. We acquire new knowledge through making theory from observation and verifying it through experiments. A scientific method is very rigorous and a new development takes long time. Where as religion is based on faith and belief. We strongly believe whatever is written in the religious text. Scientific belief and knowledges are always open to scrutiny and criticism. There are several occasions, where we have seen that a new theory has came forward by proving old and widely believed theory is wrong. On the other hand religion believes are rigid and can not be challenged. Because of this difference, some people thinks that they have to choose between science and religion.
