John Saliba, a Roman Catholic priest and professor of religious science at the University of Detroit Mercy, used an analogy to illustrate the point for the ACLU town hall forum participants.
He said a scientist observing a man walking down the street can use any number of scientific disciplines to explain how that is occurring on a physiological level.The scientist can never use the same methods to explain why the man is walking down the street, however, because this touches on other forms of inquiry, such as philosophy.
"I don't see any real confl ict between religion and science, unless religion tries to do science, or - the other way around - science tries to do religion."Saliba said.
