Beyond Progress: Science & Religion

Can either science or religion deliver truth?


The Enlightenment called for the light of reason and science to provide progress in the place of the prejudices of religion. In the current era, when postmodernists have argued that science and religion are merely competing narratives, to what extent can we look to either science or religion to deliver truth? Is it still possible to talk of progress at all and, if not, then where are we going?
