Science and Religion at a Crossroads: An Educational Perspective.
Johnson, William L.; Johnson, Annabel M.; McKenna, John E.
This article's thesis is that religion and science are ultimately the same thing, that they affect one another, and that people in the two fields therefore need to communicate. The authors begin by discussing the importance of ethical transformations to a life of love and character, arguing that the development of a technological society does not free us from ethical demands. They then move to advocating dialogue about the shared truths of science and religion. Wanting both, and positing that the former is a foundation for the latter, the authors state that Einstein's famous logion cannot be ignored: "The situation may be expressed by an image: Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."
