Science and Religion: Two Tools Quote

Here's a terrific quote from The Luminous Web about the compatibility of science and religion:
No scientific theory, including evolution, can pose any threat to religion--for these two great tools of human understanding operate in complementary (not contradictory) fashion in their totally separate realms: science as an inquiry about the factual state of the natural world, religion as a search for spiritual meaning and ethical values. ~Stephen Jay Gould
So relax and enjoy the awe and enlightenment each companionable realm of human understanding can provide.
