Description

Some might see science as providing a type of modern common sense, or set of facts, and religion as offering traditional, commonly held beliefs, or sets of practices, with neither having much to say about the other. After all, the first seems to obtain its authority from math, the second from faith. Yet Buddhists seem to be seen as, and open to seeing themselves as, both religious and scientific. How has this come about?
