The purpose of this thesis is to ultimately convince one that there is no real dispute between science and faith. I use evolution theory and Christianity’s Intelligent Design as examples of two very different ideas being used as excuses that faith and science cannot exist in harmony. Evidence is provided in the following to prove that neither faith nor science is in competition with the other. Each view is fully compatible with the other. One does not have to choose either faith or science.
