Because of the controversial nature of some of the following, I am using quotes heavily in order to allow each organization to speak for itself.

Inclusion on this list does not constitute an endorsement by Archaeolink.com of the philosophy presented on any listed website.

American Association for the Advancement of Science __ These pages include the Program of Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Religion which was lauched with three initial objectives: (1) to promote knowledge about developments in science and technology within the religious community, (2) to provide opportunities for dialogue between members of the scientific and religious communities on significant topics for the sake of mutual understanding, and (3) to promote collaboration between members of the scientific and religious communities on projects that explore the ethical and religious implications of scientific developments. - From AAAS - http://www.aaas.org/spp/

American Scientific Affiliation __ "A Christian association organized in 1941 "to investigate any area relating Christian faith and science"..."...a fellowship of men and women in science and disciplines that relate to science who share a common fidelity to the Word of God and a commitment to integrity in the practice of science." - From American Scientific Affiliation - http://www.asa3.org/

Association of Christians in the Mathematical Sciences __ A special interest organization of Christian researchers. - From Calvin College - http://www.acmsonline.org/  

Buddhism and Science __ "Western interest in Eastern religions, especially Buddhism, historically coincided with the rise of modern science and the corresponding perceived decline of religious orthodoxy in the West."

Center for Integral Science __ "Like physical science, integral science appeals to direct experience in order to ascertain the truth about reality. Integral science, however, is not limited to sensory experiences and conceptual theories about them, but is open to the entire range of experience, and to all our capacities for apprehending truth." You will find extensive articles and links. - From Center for Integral Science - http://www.integralscience.org/

The Pascal Center __ "The Pascal Centre promotes constructive relations between Christian faith and the natural sciences by means of education, outreach and research in the light of Scripture...The Centre was founded in 1988 by Redeemer College, a private non-denominational Christian liberal arts university in Ancaster, Ontario, Canada.

Religion Versus Science Might be All in the Mind __ "For years now, one small branch of science has been chipping away at the foundations of religious belief by proposing that "otherworldly" experiences are nothing more than the inner workings of the human brain. Many neuroscientists claim they can locate and explain brain functions that produce everything from religious visions to sensations of bliss, timelessness or union with a higher power." - From Sydney Morning Herald - http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2003/04/28/1051381900365.html

Science and Religion Glossary __ "The glossary below is a student group project. There is some redundance and may be some errors. The students divided up some of the key texts that we read this semester and developed a list of important terms and short definitions. The glossary is not in alphabetical order. Rather, it follows the flow of discussion in the books from which the terminology is drawn. A bridge discussion between science and religion requires some familiarity with scientific, religious, and philosophic language." - From University of Pennsylvania - http://ccat.sas.upenn.edu/~grassie/StudentProjects/Glossary.html

Where Science and Religion Overlap __ "There have been hundreds of disputes since the end of the 16th century in which scientists and theologians have taught opposing beliefs. At any given time, in recent centuries, there has been at least one active, major battle. Dozens are active at the present time." - From Religioustolerance.org - http://www.religioustolerance.org/sci_rel.htm
