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.
