Reflection for the Week - August 8

When the scientific and theological communities attempt to avoid hermeneutics (interpretation) they are liable to make a mess of things. Those in either or both disciplines face the obligation to admit that they are interpreters of data and not merely assessing the bare facts. In spite of their incessant antagonism towards each other, these two communities are interdependent, and therefore need to be in dialogue in order to better understand God, the world, self, and other.
