Subjectivity and objectivity are interdependent in both science and religion. In each discipline, objectivity is based on subjectivity, then structured and communicated within paradigms developed by a community. Non-rational thought is vital to both disciplines, and each relies on non-provable assumptions. Thus, although religion and science investigate reality from different perspectives, their methods are fundamentally similar.
