Medieval thinkers believed that the observation of the natural world led to a stronger understanding of God. That confidence began to break down during the beginning of the modern era and increasingly to some science appeared to conflict with strongly held religious beliefs. We will trace the growing struggle between science and religion from the sixteenth century to the present. To some it represents an irreconcilable split; to others the two approaches to understanding of the world are compatible.
