    1. This article focuses in the relation of religion in science under a philosophical view. The writer believes that the question about this relation has a timeless interesting, because always renews pairing transcendental and human. The religion and the sciences approach ontologically the natural and metaphysical in different ways: religion talks about the eternity of spirit, while sciences talk about the existence of material things according epistemological principles. Both religion and science begin with philosophical principles but have different aims: religion as apocalyptic become strict as science insists on its own interpretation. Religions show their doctrines as divinely inspired, necessary and necessarily for the correct human behavior. Sciences, on the other hand, couldn’t have the control of human being, so allows for additional religious narrative. Here the writer believes that the science allows an independent view of world and human behavior. Concluding, the writer says that within the context mentioned above, someone of course can speak for scientific thought and religious faith, for conflict, harmony or their interaction, for mapping scientific revolutions and religious reforms, but the main difference between them are religious narratives of the world's substance and scientific interpretations of how the world operate.
