‘Living Both Faith and Religion’
A conversation about the relationship between science and religion is scheduled at 8 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 22, 2014, in the English Chapel.
Carl Helrich, professor emeritus of physics at Goshen College, and Paul Keim, professor of religion and the Bible at Goshen College will make presentations, followed by dialogue with questions, comments and reflections from the audience.
Organizers say that in contemporary society, many think that science and religion are "at war" with each other. However, scholars have challenged this view as overly simplistic. This conflict view neglects the ways that religion and science historically have been complementary at times, while at other times in competition.
The event is supported by the Midwest Religion and Science Society and is open to the public.
