Science and Faith

I see Richard Dawkins' latest outburst has prompted a few of our senior scientists to write in The Times "that science should not be expected to provide solutions to problems such as the purpose of life or the existence of God, for which it was unfitted."

Perhaps the source of any confusion would be clearer if the anonymous agent were explicitly identified: "Each of us should not expect science to provide solutions to problems such as the purpose of life or the existence of God, for which it was unfitted."

Science and scientists answer the question "how" - Faith and theologians, the question "why". I've never understood the supposed conflict.
