Stephen Jay Gould was an iconic figure in the evolutionary biology as well as being a prolific popular science writer He died in 2002 but his scientific writing in the area of evolution is still much admired He was evidently an avid reader in addition to a highly successful scientific career However this slim book with both a heart felt sincerity and astonishing naivet demonstrated the author s tenuous grasp of both science and religion as something can be safely compartmentalized His main idea is a peaceful co existence with no cognitive contamination Specifically he proposed a non overlapping magisteria NOMA principle therefore divides the magisterium of science to cover the empirical realm what the Universe is made of fact and why does it work in this way theory The magisterium of religion extends over uestions of ultimate meaning and moral value These two magisteria do not overlap nor do they encompass all inuiry At the first glance this idea is wonderfully simple and clean However just like anything with such neat simplicity it does not meet the messy reality of human reality Science does not have its intrinsic ability to uestion its moral boundary and religion of any use must be relevant to the factual world we live In addition religion is not just about ethics or morality but something beyond see Kierkegaard s theology Yet even in Gould s own definition of religion as ethics and world views are problematic Taking stem cell research cryonics or legalization of cannabis the demarcating boundary of science and religion is often illusionary If religion is about what we ought or ought not to do and science what we can or can not do then the pitting of the battles are likely to be presence than a polite acuiesce from either sides The moving of time and history changes these boundaries like the tide washing away lines in the sand
