creation equation: Georges LeMaitre (Introduction)

QUOTE: "Just as important as his contributions to knowledge, Lemaître showed incredible genius in rationally reconciling two competing notions that still divide peoples today: science and religion. His way of thinking — measured, considerate, rational -- is a blueprint for peace and understanding. We all can, and should, learn from his example."

dhw: Thank you for this interesting article. I would add the names of Darwin and Turell to the very, very, very long list of people who have shown that science and religion are not incompatible, though one should differentiate between religion and the established, organized, dogmatic religions.

Thank you, but you need to re-read Darwin. What I've read strongly suggests he is at least agnostic, but probably atheist, notwithstanding his sentence about God's creations in some of the editions of Origins, but not all. And our discussions certainly avoid dogmatic religious precepts.
