"Torah and Science - Facts, theories and fiction"
Human imagination and speculative theories are often misrepresented as scientific facts. The controversy involving contradictions between Torah and science is a consequence of such misrepresentations. As we will see, not everything which people call "science" is science, and not everything which people call "Torah" is Torah. There is never a contradiction between real Torah and real science. Apparent contradictions are only a result of misrepresentations of Torah, misrepresentations of science, or both. Understanding the misrepresentations resolves the conflict and shows that Torah and science are in perfect harmony.
