Infinity, even if you said that, I would agree with you. As of now, our world is leading towards annihilation. The Iron Age, as the Greek's imply.
Religion restricts science and has shown that multiple times in history. Right now, as Shivamcoder3013 pointed out, stem cell and embryo research has been banned mainly because of the large amount of religious leaders going against it.
In UK, US and most EU countries, embryo and stem cell experiments are banned, other than abortion. That basically prevents biologists from furthur advancing our biotechnology.
Perhaps, but I'd still argue against that. You talk about unless people basically letting aside things so that our technology can advance faster, right? But that's still not arguing that that sort of thing isn't possible. Now to further argue this, there are issues in how we advance that seem to be stunted by different religions, I agree with that, but AGAIN assuming some religion were right (which I am NOT saying it is...) then it would also be possible that with some...evidence, we would be able to still work towards the "truth," which would in turn prove whichever religion correct. I could give other reasons as well, but thus far, I have been arguing only using assumptions that religion is correct, which in turn would mean if religion were not correct, then my arguments would ultimately fall apart...
Frankly, no. Unless people surpass the boundaries of ethical issues which make our technology as diminutive as possible. Whenever we try to advance our lifestyle (i.e cloning), ethical issues are raised which results in the experiments being prohibited. Take stem cell research for example.
I'd personally argue yes they can. For instance, assume it were possible that science had proved Christianity correct. Wouldn't they then coexist peacefully? (Speaking theoretically of course...)
Someone told me once that giving science to humans was like handing a loaded machine gun to a 5 year old and telling him to go play.
Can science and religion coexist peacefully? This is a good question to start an interesting discussion.
