Evoskepsis views the relation between science and religion as follows:
- Science is a domain of knowledge containing testable theories, which continue to be open for criticism and falsification.
- 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.
- Both science and religion are based on assumptions that cannot be proved. The domain of science, therefore, does not contain 'true knowledge'.
- Science and religion are not opposed to each other, but stand aside on a basis of assumptions that cannot be proved ('Beliefs').
- 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.
