"Religion is not going away any time soon, and science will not destroy it. If anything, it is science that is subject to increasing threats to its authority and social legitimacy. Given this, science needs all the friends it can get. Its advocates would be well advised to stop fabricating an enemy out of religion, or insisting that the only path to a secure future lies in a marriage of science and secularism."
"Much of the contemporary conflict between science and religion arises not out of the activities themselves, but out of the unhelpful way in which we presently conceptualize them - that is, as knowledge-producing enterprises that compete for the same explanatory territory."
