Some scientists have religious beliefs…
"… we must ourselves be prepared and willing to make a reasoned presentation of our faith, especially to young scientists, who have all too often concluded that a serious faith in a personal God and objective pursuit of scientific truth are incompatible."
Professor Francis Collins, Director, National Human Genome Research Institute
… some do not
"… the beliefs of most popular religions… by scientific standards… are based on evidence so flimsy that only an act of blind faith can make them acceptable."
Dr Francis Crick (co-discoverer of DNAs structure)
However, science and belief are both very important for us. Do we have to choose between them? The view that science and belief are in conflict is a major stumbling block for many people today. Michael Poole addresses this issue in Exploring Science and Belief.
Is science the ultimate test of what to believe?
Do its laws make belief in miracles impossible?
Has Darwins work ruled out the idea of a creating God?
How did the universe develop?
Was it accidental or planned?
What will happen to it eventually?
Do we have any significance in it?
These are some of the questions addressed in Exploring Science and Belief. Although he "… start(s) from what is for the theist the conviction, for the agnostic the hypothesis, and for the atheist the delusion that God exists," Michael Poole also dicusses evidence for Gods existence.

Pastor Enio SouzaRio de Janeiro, RJ, BrazilAge: 25-34Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Very good discussion about Creation and Evolution.January 24, 2012Pastor Enio SouzaRio de Janeiro, RJ, BrazilAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5The book has a very good quality, plenty of illustrations and important quotations from numerous scientists. It brings a overview about the interaction between science and religious belief. I think the only problem: the author didn't go deeper in the earth's age question. You can easily identify him as Old-Earth creationist and also as evolutionist believer. He criticized slightly the Young-Earth Creationism. However, from his explanation about science and religious purposes, he gives some interesting and unexpected solutions.
