Abstract

The three monotheisms (Christians, Judaism and Islam) agree that there is one almighty God who created the heaven and the earth, who is at the origin of everything, of life and human life. Considering that, how should we approach the three great books in 2009 when science is making progress in the reconstitution of our origins, when Benedict XVI refuses to leave our evolution to chance and when Darwin still poses a problem to some believers who call themselves creationists? By asking the question of our origins to believers, we take a very close look at this dialogue between faith and reason, science and religion, thus revealing the connections as well as the oppositions, through a past/present journey. A debate with multiple entry points: religious, but also political, philosophical, including the place it holds in our collective imaginary. Our investigation unfolds as we travel across France, Germany and Turkey.
