    John H. Evans

    Chapter from the book: Evans, J. 2018. Morals Not Knowledge: Recasting the Contemporary U.S. Conflict Between Religion and Science.


    The conclusion begins by briefly summarizing the previous chapters, then turns to what the academic participants in the religion and science debate can learn from this book. The core of this chapter is a discussion of the implications of this book for scientists. Scientists and others have claimed that portraying science and region as in systemic knowledge conflict is bad for science, and this book suggest this is correct. Scientists should admit their own moral stance and engage religion in a moral debate. The book concludes by outlining a research agenda on the moral relationship between science and religion.
