Science and Religion

Evoskepsis views the relation between science and religion as follows:

  1. Science is a domain of knowledge containing testable theories, which continue to be open for criticism and falsification.
  2. Figure Relationship 
  3. Religion is a domain of knowledge containing theories that need not to be testable and mostly aren't. They need not to be open for debate either.
  4. Both science and religion are based on assumptions that cannot be proved. The domain of science, therefore, does not contain 'true knowledge'.
  5. Science and religion are not opposed to each other, but stand aside on a basis of assumptions that cannot be proved ('Beliefs').
  6. Science and religion should not be mixed, but stay separate (as Stephen Jay Gould has advocated), contributing to a better preservation of the valuable characteristics of the scientific domain (see ad. 1) and the progress of science.
