Book #2
FAITH vs. FACT:
Why Science and
Religion are Incompatible.

by Jerry A. Coyne.
Penguin Group USA, 2015
(i-xxii, 311 pages).
    "This book presents an argument for the fundamental incompatibility of the methods of science and those of religion. It maintains that empirical and rational science is testable and reliable, while the faith and dogma of religion are not. In this elegant, provocative, and direct argument, leading evolutionary biologist and bestselling author Jerry Coyne describes in clear, patient, dispassionate details why the toolkit of science, based on reason and empirical study, while that of religion including faith, dogma and revelation is unreliable and leads to incorrect, untestable, or conflicting conclusions."
