Faraday Schools Online Curriculum Supplement

View Audio/Visual Content

FaradaySchools.com or neverofftopic.com is a website developed by the Faraday Institute and the LASAR Project in response to the growing concern that the majority of the public viewed science as an atheistic activity and that science and religion were at odds. The supplemental curriculum contains materials and approaches which can support teachers in engaging children in the area of science and religion.

As a Christian and an evolutionary biologist, I support with enthusiasm the work of BioLogos as part of my personal commitment to nurture dialog (dia-Logos!) between science and the Christian faith. I identify most strongly with the organization’s eleventh article of belief (“What we believe”): We believe that conversations among Christians about controversial issues of science and faith can and must be conducted with humility, grace, honesty, and compassion as a visible sign of the Spirit’s presence in Christ’s body, the Church.
