For the boundary between science and religion, a majority of the cases can be separated well through the verificationistic view. While empirical matters are primarily dealt with science, spiritual

    Religion versus science, the debates and conflicts have been on for centuries. For both religious and scientific ideals, the faith people have drives them. In this paper, I will examine the story of “The Eye of Apollo” by G.K. Chesterton, and the episode “House vs. God” of House, M.D., in order to question this conflict. The main character—Father Brown—in “The Eye of Apollo” combines his reasoning with his religious ideals and beliefs, or we can say his faith in God leads him to the truth of the

    Natural science and religion are two areas of knowledge that perceive knowledge using ways of knowing differently to pursue its knowledge, an example of that would be Charles Darwin and his theory of natural selection and evolution. In natural science, the theory of natural selection is derived from studying the common features in the bone structure of vertebrate limbs despite its varied use.

    To answer the question of science or religion begins a long process of debate. In my opinion, both are right. There is surely science in this world as well as a creator, God, who began humanity as well as matter. During the initial time of this debate, people were so focused on the Bible and the religion aspects to this world but just didn’t understand that there was too, science involved in our creation. Even today, humans understand that there is science to this world, which helps to explain life
