The Science Panel : How does religion inform science?December 22, 2009 1:21 PM
Albert Einstein once said: "Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind." Throughout the centuries, science and religion have been intertwined in incalculable, inspiring, and sometimes problematic ways. For thousands of years the ability to even read was driven by biblical studies. And efforts to understand the heavens and the movement of planets were part of religious exploration in early Islam and the Aztec world. Our science panel reflected on the connections between religion and science, and how one informs the other. Dr Richard Wassersug is a professor of Biology, Anatomy and Neurobiology at Dalhousie University, and Dr. Mary Anne White is University Research Professor of Chemistry and Physics at Dalhousie.
