"I Accept Evolution Scientifically but Reject it Religiously"

Does Islam Stand Against Science?

Really great article here discussing the relationship and many different facets between science and islam. I was raised christian, so my knowledge and experience comes from the other side of this same equation. While there are so many similarities between the two, there are quite a few variations and this piece really goes in depth. I shutter to think where our species would have been if not for the many waves of religious fundamentalism and violence over the millennia. Christianity and Islam have both tremendously hindered our scientific progress and it's good to talk about these issues that affect us all in a growingly ever-connected world.
