Religion and science have often been in conflict throughout human history. There are many who think that they can never be reconciled. In this essay, it will be argued that religion and science are in harmony, and, in fact, they are both necessary for the advancement of human civilization. In essence, religion and sciences represent to pathways in the search for truth. In general, religion deals with spiritual matters and science with physical matters. In some cases they overlap. The very word, "science" has had different meanings throughout the centuries. The sciences studied in the ancient world, such as alchemy, would have no meeting today. It is likely that some sciences, which are considered very important today, will in future centuries become irrelevant. (Ref. 15.).
