This article is designed to bring balance to the discussion by presenting a view of the creation of universe in which the roles of scientific discovery and religous belief can be harmonized.

Areas of conflict between religious and cultural practices with science are next discussed. Inspiration and lessons are drawn from this knowledge of the universe for greater understanding of human life. The author concludes by recommending the further exploration of outer space, and the need for unity and peaceful coexistence on our planet.
