This is a short, 13-minute commentary of a recent news article. The article detailed a psychological experiment investigating how people viewed science-based and faith-based explanations. The results showed that people are divided and have difficulty accepting both viewpoints at the same time or an integrated approach including both.

The commentary explores the underlying issues involved and probes how science historians reject the idea that science and faith are fundamentally in conflict and contradict one another. Particular emphasis is placed on the Galileo affair. While people have been led to believe that this was a major conflict history tells a different milder and much more subtle story.
