Overview: In this assignment you will use the backdrop of the scientific revolution of the 1600s (particularly concerning the place of man and the earth in the universe) to attempt to answer the question of whether or not science and religion are innately/inherently at odds. Can religious belief and science be reconciled? Was the clash that occured between natural scientists (such as Galileo) and religious institutions and theologians (such as the Catholic Church and Luther) inevitable?
