Sometimes people ask if religion and science are opposed to each other. They are – in the sense that the thumb and fingers of my hand are opposed to each other. It is an opposition by means of which anything can be grasped.
— William Henry Bragg, British physicist who with his son won the Nobel Prize for physics for their work in X-ray crystallography
A legitimate conflict between science and religion cannot exist. Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind.
— Albert Einstein
