    1. This article focuses in the relation of religion and science under a philosophical view. The writer believes that the question about this relation is of a timeless interest, since it always renews the pairing of transcendental and human. The religion and the sciences ontologically approach the natural and metaphysical in different ways: religion talks about the eternity of spirit, while sciences talk about the existence of material things according to epistemological principles. Both religion and science begin with philosophical principles but have different aims: religion as apocalyptic becomes strict and 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 allow for additional religious narrative. Here the writer believes that the science allows an independent view of world and human behaviour. Concluding, the writer maintains 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 operates.
