Science and religion are sometimes seen as opposites of each others, two concepts which always face the other, ready to maul it at any second. However, being religious and being a scientist are not mutually exclusive, in fact, some scientists have taken up religion because of their discoveries. Still, the question of faith versus logical reason always lurks in the background of societies and this is no different in fictional worlds. Whether the two are seen as the two sides of the same coin, completely neutral entities or two forces which may never comprehend each other, the relationship between science and religion is very important to a fictional world. Your exercise is to sum up, in at least three paragraphs the relationship between science and religion in your world. You can use some of the questions below as guidelines if you wish, but you can also write completely independently. In this world, is science older than religion or vica versa? What event marked the appearance of religion or science? Is religion 'real'? Do the gods of various pantheons exist or not? Is pursuing science an accepted profession? What about becoming a priest? Exactly what are the principles of the religion? Do some of them go against science? How compatible are science and religion? Do they contradict each other? Or do they complement each other, with one explaining something that is not explained by the other? How would a normal religious person react to a person of science? How would a normal person of science react to a religious person? Does this world have a scientific or religious inquisition? Are clashes between religion and science common? If so, how are they resolved, that is, if they can be resolved at all? Are there people who are trying to mediate the conflict between these two forces, if said conflict even exists? Will religion and science be able to coexist in this world at all or will one of them fade into obscurity?
