Theists Versus Atheists: Are Conflicts Necessary?

Authors: Ludwik Kowalski
Comments: 6 pages, to be used to promote debates

Mathematics is like theology; it starts with axioms (self-evident truths) and uses logical derivation to justify consecutive claims. Science is different; here claims are justified by reproducible experimental observations, not by pure logic. This does not interfere with peaceful coexistence and mutual respect between mathematicians and scientists. The situation can be contrasted with relations between some selfappointed theologians and self-appointed scientists. No one benefits from the endless "we know better" conflicts. Is it possible to avoid such conflicts? The topic was discussed over the Internet, as illustrated in this article.
