Henri Poincaré’s proposal holds likewise for religion and science:
Ethics and science have their own domains, which touch but do not interpenetrate. The one shows us to what goal we should aspire, the other, given the goal, teaches us how to attain it. So they never conflict since they never meet.
(Quoted from page 1 of Is Science Value Free?, by Hugh Lacey. Routledge, 1999,)
