Science and Metaphysics (a reaction to "Science Vs. Religion: Beyond The Western Traditions")

Today I read an interesting article on NPR concerning conversation about science and faith.  You can read it here: http://www.npr.org/blogs/13.7/2014/07/13/329759036/science-vs-religion-beyond-the-western-traditions?utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=npr&utm_term=nprnews&utm_content=20140713
