Does history show a conflict between religion and science? According to Peter Harrison, a careful study of history finds a very different narrative.
Of course, history reminds us that for every abolitionist like cousin Emily, there is at least one story of a slave owner who was also motivated by faith.

This, of course, is also true of the history of Christianity and science.
