Abstract

In recent years, we have noticed robust increase of interest in the relationship between science and religion worldwide. Today, science and religion are an important factor in the life of the people, the country and the world. Science along with religion is the greatest gift the Almighty granted on us. Modern science is not interested in the Nature. Science differs from religion in a way that its truth can and must be experimentally verified, and its methodological knowledge can be learned. Religion is dominated by irrational moment, and science by rational moment. Global leadership in science and technology has not translated into leadership in infant health, life expectancy, rates of literacy, equality of opportunity, productivity of workers, or efficiency of resource consumption. This chapter covers what does biology say, human embryogenesis, personality, bioethical aspects, legal status of the embryo, arguments for beginning of human life and human person at fertilization, different religious teachings and historical aspects, clinical controversies, visualization of early human development, and new possibilities for studying embryonic movements and behavior.
