There is no insoluble  contradiction between  faith and science, because  there cannot be two kinds  of truth. [159] 

There is not one truth of faith  that is in competition with  another truth of science. There  is only one truth, to which both  faith and scientific reason  refer. God intended reason,  with which we can recognize  the rational structures of the  world, just as he intended  faith. That is why the Christian  faith demands and promotes  the (natural) sciences. Faith  exists so that we might know  things that are not apparent to  reason yet are real above and  beyond reason. Faith reminds  science that it is supposed  to serve creation and not  set itself up in place of God.  Science must respect human  dignity instead of violating it.
