A New Creation Story: Beyond Religion and Science

I'm an atheist but I think that's a bit over simplistic. Traditionally even scientists such as Steven J. Gould have said they believe in a dichotomy: religion considers questions of value (e.g. good and evil) and science considers questions of the natural world. Many scientists would say that science can never answer ethical questions. Now, I personally believe that's wrong. I agree with Sam Harris that science can deal with ethical questions. But I think in doing so we need to understand what religions try to do and talk to people of faith, not just dismiss them.
