Religion and Science

The Yale Daily News has a report on the first of this year's Terry Foundation Lectures, "Religion and Science: Why Does the Debate Continue?"

The series featured biologist Kenneth R. Miller of Brown University as well as five other speakers representing a wide spectrum of scientists and philosophers.

"Supernatural explanations in science bother me as a natural scientist," Miller said.
