I don't see why it is necessary that we find a reconciliation between the two. I really don't even see why there necessarily needs to be a rift between the two either. Religion is a very personal experience. It affects the way we live our lives and the decisions we make, as does science. Religion on the one hand is a choice, a choice we make about our beliefs. Science for the most part, involves much less of this choice. Gravity for an example, we do not choose to be affected by it, we just are. Why can it not be said that there are just some things that we are not meant to understand, that we may never understand. I would never claim to KNOW that God exists, whether I believe it or not. I would never claim to KNOW anything about God actually, for if he does exist, it is certainly outside of our capacity to understand. The same goes for me with Science. I realize that there are many things concerning Science which I can understand, through reasoning & logic, yet there seems to always be a beginning that can never be understood. This is where I simply accept that it just is. If I spent all of my time worrying about where the Universe came from, or where energy came from in the beginning, I would spend my entire life wondering what to believe, rather than just living.
I choose to believe what I believe, and let others do the same. I am affected by the laws of Science whether I like it or not, as are others. Science is not necessary, and never will be, to explain religion; and vice-versa. It is an age-old question that will most likely never have an answer that will satisfy the majority.
What we should be focused on, rather than reconciling science with religion, is learning how to live peacefully with all religions. There is far to much war & violence in the name of God. I am not sure why anyone would want to follow a leader that focuses on forcing others to believe the same as they do. Perhaps we simply need to adjust our point of view so that Religion takes on a more personal role. Perhaps in doing so we will find that Religion and Science really don't conflict as much as we though, they are simply completely different parts of our lives.
