Facile assurances that science and religion are easy to reconcile70 tend to be intellectually unsatisfying, and fail to recognize areas of undeniable disagreement. Nevertheless, the 19th century metaphor of “warfare” between science and religion71 has long since given way to nuanced perspectives that are based on more careful, and less ideological, readings of history. 72 Thus, conﬂicts and areas of consensus between science and religion turn out to be manifestations of particular cultures at particular points in history.
