Abstract

The ultimate goal of science is TRUTH. The ultimate goal of religion is GOD. Thus, both science and religion aim towards an absolute. The main problem lies in the fact that both science and religion are created by humans, and thus depend on human perception. Consequently both truth and God cannot be isolated from human perception and are not objective but subjective phenomena. On the other hand since its inception, the law, again human creation, has asked both HOW and WHY.

Keywords: religion, science, law
