Warfare Between Science and Faith?

Date and Time:March 15, 2023 10:00 AM — to April 04, 2024 NaN:NaN AM CST
Organizer:Belmont University

“Many non-Christians, and Christians, have in recent years become convinced that science and faith are at war with one another.  We will hear from Dr. Deborah Haarsma, an MIT-trained astrophysicist and president of BioLogos, which explores the intersection of science and faith. She is co-author of Christ and the Created Order and Origins: Christian Perspectives on Creation, Evolution, and Intelligent Design and is part of Cambridge University’s Faraday Institute Test of Faith multimedia curriculum.”

This event is hosted by Belmont University, and co-sponsored by the College of Sciences & Mathematics.
