Uneasy Bedfellows

I sense that the spirit of Mandy Rice-Davies is with me tonight. My immediate response to the Synod’s passing of the motion that belief in Religion and Science are compatible was to think: “well, they would, wouldn’t they?”

I can’t say that I blame them, like Sisyphus, for trying, but really, in this day and age, the mantra of NOMA is wearing a trifle thin. And it doesn’t help when a delegate, Philip Brown of Manchester, says: "Science can only explain how something was created; religion can explain why."

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
