What Science Can -- And Cannot -- Say About Religion

A session at Skepticamp NYC 2010

Saturday 4th December, 2010

4:00pm to 4:30pm (EST)

The centuries-old relationship between science and religion has been a tenuous one, at best. Many people – religious and non-religious – think science and religion are compatible, and try to find intellectual space in-between the two. Others argue that science and religion represent two conflicting approaches to belief and knowledge, and more generally, life. In this discussion, Michael De Dora will weigh such questions as: What is science? What can it say about religion? Does science demand atheism? Or make atheism at least seem more reasonable? And what are the limitations of science. What can't science say about religion? Michael De Dora is executive director at the thinktank Center for Inquiry in New York City.
