The last of the three-part “What is TRUTH?” series discussed how the historically harmonious coexistence of the ‘natural’ and the ‘supernatural’ as perceived by humankind was fractured, and will then review perils of this schism. Through examination of the writings of the Bahá’í Faith and other Holy texts, as well as quotations from legendary pioneers of science, this presentation will reveal how science and religion are harmoniously interconnected as part of one reality necessary for the welfare and progress of human society.

“Religion must stand the analysis of reason. It must agree with scientific fact and proof so that science will sanction religion and religion fortify science. Both are indissolubly welded and joined in reality.”

“If religion were in harmony with science and they walked together, much of the hatred and bitterness now bringing misery to the human race would be at an end.”

“Put all your beliefs into harmony with science; there can be no opposition, for truth is one.”

~ Quotes from the Bahá’í Writings ~
