God and Science

Sometimes I get the impression that people think your intellect shrivels up and dies if you are a Christian. Other times I get the distinct impression that people worship science the way Christians worship God. The following is a link to an interesting discussion on NPR about faith and science. It's nice to see that there are people who recognise that the two need not be at each others' throats.

Must We Have a Separation of Church and Science?

Can a world class scientist also be a devout Christian? Some big names in science say "absolutely." But balancing a scientific career with religious beliefs does involve some challenges.
