ONLINE: Interaction of Science and Faith in a Challenging World
BioLogos board member Jennifer Wiseman as well as advisors Denis Alexander and David Lahti will speak at the Faraday Institute for Science and Religion’s summer course “Interaction of Science and Faith in a Challenging World.” This course will take place from July 4-9, 2021. Exact times are TBD.
“The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion Summer Course 2021 will feature 13 leading academics in 10 fields of study including; Behavior and Ecology, Climate Science, Genetics, History of Science, Mathematics, Neuroscience, Oceanography, Philosophy and Theology of Science, Physics and Space Exploration.
Life in this world produces an ever increasing range of challenges from Covid-19 to the climate emergency to medical ethics and finding meaning and purpose. Science and Faith both give us ways to understand and respond to these challenges, especially when they work together.
Join us online to explore this subject in some depth in the company of a group of top academics and hear them speak about their science and how it impacts their faith.
Each day will have a different theme:
Science and Faith in History and Society
Science and Faith in Origins and Evolution
Science and Faith in Shaping the Universe
Science and Faith: All in the Mind?
Science and Faith in Caring for the Environment
From Sunday 4th July to Friday 9th July we shall be hosting two or three webinars given by an array of international speakers highly qualified in their individual fields. There will also be some opportunity for on-line discussion.”
This event is hosted by the Faraday Institute for Science and Religion.
