The disintegration of the old world order is accelerating, driven by religious fanaticism, irreligion, and an inability to achieve sufficient consensus of thought and action to systematically address the ills afflicting humanity. The capacity to unite in the investigation of truth for the advancement of civilization requires the harmony of science and religion, in which, as ‘Abdu’l-Bahá explains, science is freed from ma terialism and religion from superstition. This paper looks at how Bahá’ís might understand and increasingly contribute to the effectuation of this principle through action and involvement in contemporary discourse.
