This term's theme: 'Faith in science? Faith in God?'
Religion and science are often pictured as opposites, but as Brian Cox says in his interview, that might be a false dichotomy. Human searches for meaning and truth are not just in one discipline. So what shall we tell the children? We get beyond the fractious 'religion versus science' polarisations to explore how great RE can examine the big questions of origins, knowledge and values on the frontiers between faith and science.
In this issue of REtoday you will find many practical ideas for opening up questions like these with your primary or secondary pupils. The exploration of the nature of knowledge, evidence and meaning is surely close to the heart of both science and religion. They may, as argued in this edition, be incommensurable worldviews, or perhaps the perceived conflicts can be solved or dissolved.
