Problems Facing the Science-Faith Dialogue with Emerging Adults

on July 16, 2015

70% of 18- to 23-year-olds agree that “teachings of science and religion conflict,” which problematizes the science-faith dialogue with emerging adults. Having taught religion and science in congregations for 20 years and now in a university, I’m also researching emerging adults’ attitudes on related topics, all of which helps me assess these statistics. Here I summarize my interviews with emerging adults, note specific problems, and offer some tentative solutions, particularly around evolution and creation.
