Item description for Bibles, Science and Sanity by Richard P. White...
Bibles, Science and Sanity is an insightful account of the endless conflict between science and religion. With wit, clarity and scholarship, the author addresses the real value of religion, the appalling claims of fundamentalists, the trap of fundamentalism and religious commercialism. He compares historically the dismal failure of theocracies with the progress afforded by science. As a practicing Christian and a retired scientist, the author embraces the values of religion but examines Scripture realistically to document that science and religion serve us only as separate entities. Bibles, Science and Sanity reviews the nature of science, the religious thoughts of others, the religious misbehavior of many and the value of personal belief as professed by our Founding Fathers. It is a construct for citizens who are concerned with the relentless demands of dogmatists that religion must define history, science and government.
