Ohio Northern University presents a discussion on ‘Living Both Faith and Science’
The Ohio Northern University Department of Philosophy and Religion and the Office of the Chaplain present a discussion on “Living Both Faith and Science” in the English Chapel on Wednesday, Oct. 22 at 8 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
This event will be a conversation about the relationship between science and religion. 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 sometimes complementary and, at other times, in competition.
Featured speakers will be Carl Helrich, professor emeritus of physics at Goshen College, and Paul Keim, professor of religion and Bible at Goshen College. A period of dialogue, including questions, comments and reflections from the audience, will follow the presentations. The event is supported by the Midwest Religion and Science Society.
