Astronomy and Accomodation

"But the discoveries that come streaming in from our telescopes are inspiring thoughtful people not to subsume science to faith or faith to science, but to seek an accomodation between the two. It is this quest that is winning adherents as the millenium begins. Science and religion illuminate different mysteries, all agree, casting their light on different questions. But each can heal the worst excesses of the other, with science, as Pope Paul II said, 'Purify[ing]' religion from error and superstition,' and religion 'purify[ing] science from idolatry and false absolutes.' by infusing it with a little humility. Or, as Einstein observed, 'Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.'
