“God and the Multiverse”

Deborah Haarsma, President of BioLogos
May 6, 2015
Vancouver, British Columbia, CAN

On Wednesday, May 6, Deborah Haarsma will be speaking at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. Her talk is titled “God and the Multiverse”.

Abstract:
The last 100 years have transformed our understanding of the universe.  We now know that the universe is ancient, beginning in a Big Bang 13.8 billion years ago, and that it continues to expand today, at an ever-increasing rate.  We’ve also seen amazing evidence that some physical laws and constants are fine-tuned for life, as well as hints that our universe is part of a much bigger multiverse.  What does all this have to do with God?  This talk will give an overview of a range responses from atheists and Christians to these exciting discoveries.

Glen Workshop: The Art of Science and Faith

Kathleen Housley, BioLogos Blog Author
June 14, 2015
South Hadley, MA

June 14-21, 2015, Glen Workshop will be hosting a lecture by Kathleen Housley. Housley has written a blog series for the BioLogos Daily Blog titled “Poetry, God, and the Natural World” and will be speaking about “The Art of Science and Faith”. This lecture is part of the ECF-funded grant project from Image about “Evolution and the Imago Dei: The Artist as Translator”.

In the domains of science and religion, the artist can be a powerful interpreter, helping people understand more deeply what it means to be created in the image of God. Besides speaking different dialects, science and religion also have different ways to discern truth: on one hand, the scientific method; on the other, reading the Bible and prayer. No matter their differences, science and religion thrive best when there is mutual respect. In this wide-ranging seminar, we will look at everything from Genesis and evolution to the Higgs Boson. Our guides will include artists (Leonardo da Vinci), musicians (Bach), scientists (Galileo), and theologians (John Polkinghorne). Our goal is not to reach agreement but to appreciate anew the vastness of God’s universe.
