Where the Conflict Really Lies

Alvin Plantinga

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a brief overview of the four chapters in the first part of the book, which looks into alleged conflict between religion and modern science, in particular Christian belief and science. It discusses the tensions between Christianity and evolution, and considers the sources of this conflict. It then analyzes the claims of the world's best known atheist, Richard Dawkins, and concludes that Dawkins gives us no reason whatever to think that current biological science is in conflict with Christian belief.

Keywords:   religion, modern, science, Richard Dawkins, Christianity, evolution
