Thank God for Science?

This article argues that we should, a least a little bit, and says "Those who magnify recent controversies about science and religion, projecting conflict back into historical time, perpetuate a historical myth to which no historian of science would subscribe."

Not entirely convinced, but certainly the history of science, scientific discovery, and fact-making, is more human and less cold logic and scientific "method" than most people suppose.  Read Bruno Latour's "Science in Action" for more on that.
