However, what Russell really does is to offer first a historical view of religion's relationship with science and then in latter writings, how that relationship went wrong.4/5.
A representation of the conflict between science and the Church was the trial of Galileo. He had published a book that supported scientific ideas that opposed ideas of the Church, more specifically the idea that the planets orbit the sun. This research formed the basis of Durkheim's book, The Elementary Forms of the Religious Life, which is certainly the best‐known study on the sociology of religion.
Durkheim viewed religion within the context of the entire society and acknowledged its place in influencing the thinking and behavior of the members of society. Scientific theory – A statement or principle, honed through scientific observation, reasoning and experimentation, that explains a natural phenomenon.
Theistic evolution – A belief held by some religious groups, including the Catholic Church, that God is the guiding force behind the process of evolution.

of Rue's book, following roughly the sequence of its three parts: 1. On human nature; 2. On spiritual traditions; and 3. On the future of religion. The focus is on the theory of religion and its evolutionary and psychological background. I will conclude with some methodological comments on Rue's theoretical Size: KB.
The concepts of "science" and "religion" are a recent invention: "religion" emerged in the 17th century in the midst of colonization and globalization and the Protestant Reformation, "science" emerged in the 19th century in the midst of attempts to narrowly define those who studied nature.
However, whilst Darwin's radical text did have a profound effect on religious and scientific thought, many simply responded to his evolutionary theory by adapting Darwin's findings to fit within a Christian framework. Many people failed to understand how natural selection could work without a divine creator.
A Scientific Definition of Religion. useful to scientific theory the book argues that religion is a by-product of human evolution just as the cognitive intervention, cultural. Over the centuries religion and science have been in a constant battle for domination with heated debates about the meaning of life.
