“New truth is often uncomfortable,” Bertrand Russell wrote, “but it is the most important achievement of our species.” In Religion and Science (1961), his popular polemic against religious dogma, he covers the ground from demonology to quantum physics, yet concedes that science cannot touch the profound feelings of personal religious experience.

    " The "original" and still the Greatest!! "

    " I am largely interested in science, religion, philosophy, and world issues -- and Russell does a decent job exposing some of the conflicts we've seen in the history of religion and science as they've co-developed over time. The political manipulation and influence of the Judeo-Christian religions were threatened as science began to "explain the unexplainable" and give priority to using reason, intellect, and the scientific method in order to explain phenomena in the world around them. This caused a huge clash with religious leaders of the time and still does today. Russell goes into some detail regarding this relationship and conflict. I liked this book overall. "

    " I think I should have read, as opposed to listen to, this book, as it was hard to follow auditorially. There were some weird tangents about psychology and solipsism. Not really what I thought it would be about. "

    " Religion is bad, science is good and cherrypicking is fun. Even if I share some of Russell's biases, this felt like a pseudo-history lesson at best. "
