My title: 'With apologies to Albert Einstein: Is physics without religion lame, and religion without physics blind?'

It's usually assumed in our society that science and religion are at war with each other, or at best have little to say to each other. Those who would like to find a more harmonious and constructive middle ground often quote Albert Einstein's famous claim, that 'Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.'This talk will look at the question of whether science (especially physics) needs religion, and vice versa, and will suggest that, since all of the usual answers miss the point, we need to take a different perspective.
