Science and religion, like peanut butter and chocolate…

… or Vodka and tonic.

Meet Fr. Georges Lemaître, father of the Big Bang Theory. No not that one; the other one, the cosmological model that explains the early development of the universe.

Once at a conference after Fr. Lemaitre detailed his theory of the Big Bang, Einstein stood up, applauded, and said, “This is the most beautiful and satisfactory explanation of creation to which I have ever listened.”

Another example that science and religion aren’t at odds with each other would be Fr. Stanley Jaki. I like to remind myself of these facts every time a science-y type tries to portray a religious-y type as a superstitious, backward thinking zealot.
