Where to Look for God 02

This KS3 RE quiz asks questions about God. Where to look for God? In a building? In good deeds? Through a microscope?

Religions seek to make sense of the world and of people's place in it. Those with religious beliefs do not think that the world can be fully understood purely through observation, believing instead that we are surrounded in some sense by mystery, which can only be approached spiritually. Many atheists believe that scientific knowledge, which is always growing and uncovering hitherto unexplained phenomena, can ultimately explain the mysteries of the universe and therefore believe that scientific approaches and religious faith are incompatible. However, the vast majority of religious people accept scientific findings as a matter of course, and very many scientists are religious believers, so the popular conception of science and religion as naturally being in conflict is somewhat misleading, since the questions each seeks to answer are rather different.
