“The world needs to wake up from the long nightmare of religion. Anything we scientists can do to weaken the hold of religion … may in fact be our greatest contribution to civilisation.” - Steven Weinberg, Nobel laureate*
It’s no secret that in recent years, science and faith have appeared to be irreconcilable approaches to life. Has science disproved God? Is faith in God just a way of explaining what we don’t know? What do we do with the Bible’s reports of miracles? Can creation accounts and evolutionary theory coexist? If there is a God, why doesn’t he make himself clearer?
Join us during National Science Week 2019 for this conversation about whether it’s possible to be committed to science and have a robust Christian faith. You’ll have a chance to ask questions, or simply sit and listen to what other people have to say. All welcome.
