92Y Live! The Future of God: The Merging of Science and Religion
Sunday, April 14, 2013 from 7:30 PM to 10:00 PM (EDT)
Congregation Kol Haverim of Glastonbury, Conn., is proud and pleased to partner with the 92 St Y and the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) to bring a series of live interactive broadcasts to the Greater Hartford community. Live from NY's 92nd Street Y™, now in its ninth year, is a series of lectures, interviews, panels, and readings featuring newsmakers, political figures, opinion-shapers and authors who discuss the issues and events that affect our lives. Using satellite technology, the 92Y simultaneously broadcasts their renowned educational and cultural programming to community organizations across America.
Must science and religion always be opposing and irreconcilable forces? Looking at recent trends in theoretical physics and the response of contemporary theologians to scientific theories, this panel discusses whether science and religion can, in fact, be seen as complementary ways of understanding our world.
Andrew Zolli is the co-author of the new book Resilience: The Science of Why Things Bounce Back. David Eagleman is a neuroscientist and writer at Baylor College of Medicine, where he directs the Laboratory for Perception and Action and the Initiative on Neuroscience and Law. He is also a New York Times bestselling author published in 27 languages. Dr. Reza Aslan, the founder of AslanMedia.com, is a Wallerstein professor at Drew University’s Center on Religion, Culture and Conflict.
This event is open to ALL! Our evening at Congregation Kol Haverim will begin with refreshments at 7:30 pm, with the broadcast starting at 8:15 pm. Most 92Y Live programs run about 75 to 90 minutes. We invite you stay after for discussion. We are excited to share this fascinating opportunity with the Greater Hartford community and beyond!
