scientists find their voice, too

A Free-for-All on Science and Religion - New York Times: This is an article about how the community dialogues contend with each other and in the process throw light on the truth, somewhere in the middle of it all; here, the scientists begin to weigh in with their counterpoints.

"Somewhere along the way, a forum this month at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, Calif., which might have been one more polite dialogue between science and religion, began to resemble the founding convention for a political party built on a single plank: in a world dangerously charged with ideology, science needs to take on an evangelical role, vying with religion as teller of the greatest story ever told."
