Abstract [en]

This paper is going to examine the relationship between science and religion with humanists and creationists as examples. The research done in this study is inductive and inspired from grounded theory, furthermore, aims to be explanatory. This is, more specifically, a literature analysis. The ambition of this essay is to identify the relationship science and religion share via humanism and creationism exclusively through secondary sources. The analysis will be inspired by Ian Barbour’s (1998) typology within religion and science, however this essay will only have three divisions. These three divisions are, science a threat to Christianity, harmonizing and different domains/ purposes. The research done in secondary literature proved that no singular solution is suitable being that the subjects’ religion and science are so immense with various perspectives and theories. Understanding and knowledge is what is needed in order for this vast subject to be well-defined. However, if the subject is to become more accurate then it needs to be more all encompassing. This can in turn lead to a clearer understanding of the field religion and science.
