Quotes Discussed on Science and Faith

“There is a fundamental difference between religion, which is based on authority, and science, which is based on observation and reason. Science will win because it works.” Stephen Hawking
“I am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world.” Richard Dawkins
“Science and religion, then, are competitors in the business of finding out what is true about our universe. In this goal religion has failed miserably, for its tools for discerning 'truth' are useless. These areas are incompatible in precisely the same way, and in the same sense, that rationality is incompatible with irrationality.” Jerry A. Coyne
