Science & religion - nonoverlapping Magisteria?

Oldie but a goodie...

A 5 year-old daughter went to mom (mum for us Aussies) to ask where we came from. "Well, God made Adam and Eve and they had children all the way down to you darling." Her daughter went away satisfied with mommy's explanation. Couple of days later she wen to dad to ask the same question. "Well, we all came from monkeys and over many years became people just like you and me." His daughter went away a little confused and went back to mommy.

"You said God made us and daddy said we all came from monkeys." her daughter said. "Oh that's simple, darling. Daddy was talking about his side of the family and I was talking about mine."

So there you have science and religion as Gould's "nonoverlapping Magisteria"!
