Some subjects by their nature elicit strong responses. For example,
few people feel merely indifferent about the merits of alternative or complementary
medicine. The relationship between science and religion is another subject
about which most people have definite opinions. They arise from the assumption,
widely prevalent in contemporary culture, that religion and natural science
are engaged in such fundamentally different tasks that their relationship
is one of mutual independence and even hostility.
