Rocks of Ages: Science and Religion in the Fullness of Life - Stephen Jay Gould Gould stirred up a bit of a hornet's nest when he suggested that science and religion have separate areas of expertise and should stick to those areas and stop interfering with each other. One wishes this were possible, but science and religion do overlap on certain topics and they cannot both be correct at the same time, unless one embraces cognitive dissonance. I appreciate the moderate philosophical position Gould is trying to take here, but I kind of wish he had stuck to writing about biology and evolution where he is on stronger footing.
