  • Religion And Science
    587 words
    "Science vs. Religion" The question as to whether or not religion belongs in a science classroom is a very complex and difficult question. Religion can be looked at from different angles, starting from its validity. Despite the lack of evidence to support the idea of creationism, that in itself is not enough to warrant its exclusion from schools. I don't think students should be told who or what to believe in, but they should acquire enough knowledge on both subjects in order to think and make t...
  • Most Interesting Frictions Between Science And Religion
