The Truth About Physics and Religion
Many people believe that physics and religion are separate entities. They
claim that physics deals only with the objective, material world, while religion
deals only with the world of values. It is obvious, from these, and from many
other comparisons, that conflicts have arisen between physics and religion.
Many are convinced that the two fields completely oppose each other, and are
not related in any ways. Many people, who follow a particular religion, feel
offended by the claims that physicists have made, while physicists believe that
religion has no basis in reality. I will show, however, that these conflicts are
founded on a misunderstanding, and that there is no division between physics
and religion. I will also prove that the misunderstanding lies in the parables of
religion and in the statements made by physicists. Furthermore, I will show that
only physicists can really know the truth of physics, and only religious followers
can know the truth of that religion; everyone else has to take it on faith.
Many people believe that physics and religion are entirely separate. They
claim that physics is only concerned with discovering what is true or false, while
religion is concerned with what is good or evil. Scientists appear to agree that
"physics is the manner in which we argue about the objective side of reality."
Religious followers, on the other hand, agree that "religion is the way we
express the subjective decisions that help us choose the standards by which we
live." Although these definitions seem to be contrasting, an important element
remains absent, an element that must first be considered before religion and
physics can be compared.
Those who think that religion has no basis in reality also believe that
there is an "obvious" separation between the two fields. They think that
