This paper examines the relationship between two ideologies that are often identified as complete opposites, Science and Religion. In this paper, I argue that there is a way to make these two ‘opposite’ ideologies complementary through a process of Integration. My main focal points throughout this paper are physics and religion. I use Ian G. Barbour’s concepts of Conflict, Independence, Dialogue and Integration to explain the process through which the two can integrate and find ‘Ultimate Truth’. In this paper, I have also included transcriptions of interviews that I have conducted with some of The College of Wooster’s own Professors of Physics opinions on the topic. I have found that it takes a great deal of wisdom and patience in order for the two ‘truths’ to become one intertwining truth.
