      Abstract:

      Science and religion seem to have been at odds with each other   throughout history. This has affected the course of humanity and   how society has prejudice towards either science or religion.   Atheist scientists believe in what they know because they believe   in reason and think that theists are unreasonable.

      The paper brings the problems facing humanity today between   science, religion, and secularism within societies. The followers   of each could be fanatics of their own group. The paper tries to   reconcile the debate between atheists and theists, under the   microscope of science.

      This study makes an analogy of G-d and gravity. It shows that the   power of reason used by scientists to deduce gravity is the exact   same reasoning that theists use to believe in G-d. The study goes   beyond philosophical arguments and travels deep into the core   principles of the human intellect of scientists and theologians   to understand what they believe. It unravels the truth behind the   reasoning of why different humans believe in what appears to be   completely different things. The study uses elements of modern   science and its cosmological worldview, such as singularity,   spacetime, black holes, and quantum physics. It shows parallelism   of modern scientific theories with various world Scriptures, such   as Hindu and Islamic texts. This study does not argue the truth   of any specific religion, but rather argues the existence of G-d   from a broader perspective, using the exact same principles   scientists use to formulate their worldview of the universe.

      This study shows the rationality and irrationality in the   argumentative battle between science and religion. It attempts to   end the debate and dispute between science and religion by   understanding the truths behind them. It concludes that anyone   who believes that the other is wrong is irrational, and that in   reality science and religion complement one another. A theologian   must also be a scientist, and a scientist must also be a   theologian.
