Abstract [en]

The relationship between Darwin’s theory of evolution and religion has been, to say the least, a controversial topic ever since the publication of The Origin of Species in 1859. Interestingly enough, evolutionary biologists have had and continue to have quite different views about this relationship. The questions that I addess in this essay are: (1) what views about the proper relationship between science and religion can we find among contemporary evolutionary biologists? and (2) how should we assess these views?--more specifically, which one (if any) is the most reasonable one to adopt? In relation to these issues I also ask (3) what would count as Darwinian heresy on this matter?
