Science and Religion — not such strange bedfellows after all

Some of the world's greatest scientific thinkers have had this to say about the relationship between science and religion:

Albert Einstein, theoretical physicist - "I do not share the crusading spirit of the professional atheist."

Thomas A. Edison, inventor - "My utmost respect and admiration to all the engineers, especially the greatest of them all: God."

Carl Ludwig Schleich, pioneer of local anaesthesia - "I became a believer in my own way through the microscope and observation of nature, and I want to contribute, insofar as I can, to the full harmony between science and religion."

Charles Darwin, naturalist - "I have never denied the existence of God. I think the theory of evolution is fully compatible with faith in God. I think the greatest argument for the existence of God is the impossibility of demonstrating and understanding that the immense universe, sublime above all measure, and man were the result of chance."

Maria Mitchell, astronomer - "Scientific investigations pushed on and on, will reveal new ways in which God works, and bring us deeper revelations of the wholly unknown."

Carl Sagan, astronomer – "Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality."
