New book...

I saw this on the Guardian website
this work shows that until recently there was no warfare between science and religion

Well, well, well, Someone should tell the author about the scientists that have been burned at the stake over the past couple of millennia or so...
Galileo in particular springs to mind as someone who might take issue with that statement.
Although you could argue that the argument is true given that it would have been a war on science...
of course, back then it was labelled as 'heresy'...

But hey, there's more:
There is widespread confusion about the nature of religious truth

Well, yeah, since religion has exactly no interest in truth, so I can see how some people might get confusedat first...

And it gets better:
For the first time in history, a significantly large number of people want nothing to do with God

I wonder if this could be because people can finally say that they don't believe in fairies/santa claus/god/Random_Deity without fear of being burnt at the stake...
