Confluence of Cosmos and Creed: A Guide to Bahá'í Integration of Science and Religion

The principle upheld in Bahá'í education that science and religion are complementary systems of knowledge and practice, both contributing to the pursuit of truth and the betterment of humanity. The idea is not that religion apes the fads of scientists, but that science itself is the pursuit of truth -- which is fundamentally a religious endeavor. Abdu'l-Baha explained that the true meaning of science is the "love of truth implanted in the heart of man" and much of the core doctrinal literature of the Baha'i faith is devoted to the requisites for the human mind to approach truth. The danger of bias is much more profound than people appreciate, and yet the promise of some degree of objectivity is fundamental to the Baha'i teachings -- that man should be able to see truth with his own eyes and not through the eyes of other. Science and Religion both require individual justice for the "independent investigation of truth".
