    Do you feel there is an overlap in science and religion, or are they two distinctly different...

    realms? Religion to include Atheism, Naturalistic religions, Christianity, Islam, and other major belief systems.

    I think certain events in religious text can be explained by science or at least rationalized. Of course there are many parts about religion that can't even be touched by science...very touchy topic to many people haha =p

    Too much manipulation in both. Maybe that is the point where they overlap.

    There is no overlap, one is a doctrine of blind faith; the other a doctrine of proof.

    The biggest overlap I've seen to date is between what quantum physics is revealing about the nature of physical reality and the spiritual concepts found in many eastern religions like Vedanta, Hinduism, Taoism, and even New Testament Christianity.  They all seem to be saying that there is one reality that everything is a part of, and that the infinite forms that make up the physical world are all a part of and emerge out of this one, indescribable, unknowable essence.
