Pastors Say Religion and Science Can Co-exist
Signers of the Clergy Letter Project, endorsed by roughly 2,500 clergypeople across the United States so far, believe that while religious truth differs from scientific truth, they can maintain peaceful co-existence. University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh College of Letters and Science Dean Michael Zimmerman, who is heading the campaign, says the Bible explains truths about human beings and God, it does not contain scientific information and should not be part of the science curriculum. The goal of the project is to collect 10,000 signatures from clergy members. The signatures of pastors who have signed the Clergy Letter Project can be viewed online.
