What Should Scientific Organizations Say about Religion?
The poll has closed and here are the results.
A slight majority say that organizations like AAAS (amd NAS) should say nothing about the compatibility of science and religion. I think that's the correct choice.
What's surprising (to me) is that 31% of you said these organizations should say that science and religion are incompatible. I believe this is true but I still think that scientific organizations should not say anything. They don't speak for their members on this topic.
I'm glad to see that only 14% of Sandwalk readers support the unsupportable statement that science and religion are compatible.
