rom Why Evolution Is True, a fine post by Mr. Coyne on the tussle for truth between religion and science. He provides several quotes from Sophisticated Theologians (coined by Coyne) which show them to be clearly making claims about reality.
“In this I am convinced that true Christianity is precisely the same as true science. Both are required to be totally open to whatever is authentically given in each situation. This is no mere coincidence. For it is Jesus Christ who definitively makes it clear that the universe is truly open to truly scientific investigation.” — David Jenkins
“On balance, theism is vastly more hospitable to science than naturalism, a much better home to it. Indeed, it is theism, not naturalism, that deserves to be called ‘the scientific worldview.’” — Alvin Plantinga
There are many others, although none as cringe inducing as that last one, IMHO. To show the hollowness of these claims, Jerry provides us with the top 10 scientific discoveries and accomplishments of 2012 from Wired Science. Along with the Higgs Boson and others, there are Curiosity roving on Mars, drilling through two miles of Antarctic ice to Lake Vostok (new life?) and finding an Earth-like planet orbiting Alpha Centauri B.
His simple graphic, below, shows the same for religion.
I propose a different list, although not necessarily from 2012 alone or in any particular order.
