Is there a conflict between science and religion? The religious organizations representing most Americans clearly don't think so. Interestingly, the science organizations representing most American scientists don't think so either.
Cosmologists have used the Big Bang theory to examine how the large-scale structure of the universe emerged from tiny fluctuations in the density of cosmic matter -- but the original model left some perplexing cosmic properties to chance.
