    Give me references to journals, preferably peer-review, that mix Science and Religion. Found only one such: “Zygon: Journal of Religion and Science”. I bet there were plenty of such journals prior to Darwinian Revolution.

    Zygon (journal) - Wikipedia

    But mix of Religion and Science in the end will result in finding True Religion. I need journals, that can change academic Science and add up to it. Does this Zygon journal make change to Physics or Math, if God becomes proven? No? No. Okey! I wanted a lot from damned planet. There are no such journals. No "Science + Religion" out there. But maybe there is a science and spirituality peer-review journals?

    All religious scientists
    (including A. Einstein [a pan-theist], I. Newton [a christian] and Nicola Tesla [Eastern-Orthodox])
    wrote their articles in such a way that their faith had no effect on their scientific work: same results could be made by godless people. And very rare exceptions (it is a genious minority among large number of Creationists) were not allowed to peer-reviewed publications.

    Mixing science with religion would seem to me to be a fruitless endeavor on either front. They are both processes intended to generate very different results. However, mixing science and theology, (or other similar expressions of philosophy) could produce some very interesting and possibly beneficial results.

    Journals as we understand them weren't really a "thing" before Darwin.

    Wikipedia has quite a good article on academic journals, including their history Academic journal - Wikipedia

    Your reference for the journal refers to the CASIRAS - CENTER FOR ADVANCED STUDIES IN RELIGION AND SCIENCE.

    I do not believe that the referenced journal 'mixes' science and religion, but works to Harmonize science and religion.

    CASIRAS – Center for Advanced Studies in Religion and Science

    ACTIVITIES OF CASIRAS
    May 13, 2018


    CASIRAS is a Partner with the Institute on Religion in an Age of Science (IRAS) in supporting the 2017 IRAS conference on Star Island. Being a Partner means sharing news about the conference with CASIRAS Board members and friends, for which IRAS offers discounts for registration and room and board. IRAS will also share information provided by CASIRAS at the conference. More on the Conference is at http://thewickedproblemofclimatechange.weebly.com.

    CASIRAS has financially supported a new web-based curriculum, FAITH INTERSECTIONS, developed by Kim Eighmy, a CASIRAS Board member emeritus and a Christian educator in the Lutheran church. The curriculum’s six lessons are split into two sections. The first looks at faith statements and the Apostle’s Creed, and the second provides a general overview of religion and science in approaching topics such as biology and mind/body connections. Eighmy writes, “By integrating scientific teaching into faith-based educational programs, youth will be better positioned in the future to make decisions that affect the integrity of all of life.”

    CASIRAS funds the email service (provided by Constant Contact) used by the Clergy Letter Project (theclergyletterproject.org) to distribute its monthly Newsletter to thousands of clergy members who are signatories of the Christian, Rabbi, Unitarian Universalist, or Buddhist Letters, as well as scientific consultants and other interested parties who have requested addition to the data base. The Clergy Letter Project is an endeavor designed to demonstrate that religion and science can be compatible and to elevate the quality of discourse on this issue.

    Organizations like this do promote the Harmony of Science and Religion, as the Baha'i Faith does, and how to integrate the teaching of science and religion in schools.

    Perhaps so. And perhaps it would finally instill some respect for morality on science, too.

    Naturalism mixes science and atheism with the assumptions taken religiously that God never acted in history and so there are many

    The Zygon Journal and the related CASIRAS organization would be no help for you quest. The are more seeking an interface dialogue between science and religion to harmonize the relationship.

    You could always check out the dishonest unethical Discovery Institute.

    Actually some fundamentalist creationists have published in peer reviewed journals, but their material was straight science.

    Actually, by the foundation of science the objective verifiable evidence concerning the nature of our physical existence will not change with one's religious beliefs. Science is based on the physical evidence, and not religious belief.

    For example: Einstein's scientific work has been confirmed by many scientists of different religious beliefs, and remains the foundation of much of our physics and cosmology today.

    The Truth is what God acts on Material World: look up "Holy Fire". So there must be modifying action of Religion on Science. But ``the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you know Him, for He lives with you and will be in you." John 14:17.

    What?! Miracles are not relevant to Science?!
    Science is Truth-seeking, isn't it? Or it is lie-seeking?

    If there is objective verifiable evidence concerning a miracle it is no longer a miracle.

    Science does not ether fallsify nor deny miracles occur. Just simply not the realm of science

    This would only apply to Ontological Naturalism, and not Methodological Naturalism, which has no assumptions concerning God, nor whether God acted in history.
