Is Religion Really Bad for Science?

GSC’s very own Philosophy Lecturer, Rev. Dr. John Owens spoke at a conference on 5th May at Auckland University called Is Religion Really Bad for Science? Reflections on Dawkins and Other New Atheists,” which was organized by the NZ Christians in Science group. His topic was metaphysics, and he compared the approach of Richard Dawkins on fundamental questions of reality with the approach of Aristotle. He said that religion should not be even slightly bad for science, but that it should be bad for scientism, the view that the only questions worth asking or answering are those of the empirical sciences.
