Are science and faith locked in an unavoidable battle of worldviews? Must one win and the other lose? No, says Francis Collins, a physician-geneticist who led the Human Genome Project in its historic program to read out all of the letters of the human DNA instruction book. Science is one way of knowing; faith is another. Both aim to reveal truth, but each answers different kinds of questions. Science tells us how; faith tells us why.
