Science and religion are on two completely different perspective scales. Living your life believing in religion or living your life believing in science can lead you to many different things. Religion explains that the world was created by this higher being called God. However, science believes in theory’s and experiments that could explain how the world came about. Goodall writes, “I was taught, as a scientist, to think logically and empirically rather than intuitively or spiritually” (109) .

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
