Nature article: Religion and science can have a true dialogue

A correspondent passed on this very interesting article from the leading science journal, Nature, titled, Religion and science can have a true dialogue, http://www.nature.com/news/religion-and-science-can-have-a-true-dialogue-1.20627, dated 22nd Sept. 2016

A short extract from it:

They [group of UK church leaders] were frustrated by the task of engaging seriously with science against the backdrop of a popular narrative of science–faith conflict that pervades contemporary culture.

Too often, this simplistic claimed tension is used in the media, for instance, to pigeonhole ethical arguments from (even highly scientifically literate) religious figures as being relevant only to those ‘of faith’, rather than expressing a broader concern for human welfare.
