Jim Bradley is a mathematician and a Christian. He's seeking to reconcile the scientific observation of randomness in the universe with the religious observation of God's action in the world. Michael Ruse is a Quaker-born philosopher of science and an atheist. He believes that it is possible to reconcile Christian faith with evolutionary theory. As part of The Civil Conversations Project (civilconversationsproject.org), On Being host Krista Tippett will draw them out on the fascinating ways science and religion are finding new paths to each other in our time.

When & Where
On Being is a social enterprise with a radio show at its heart.
On Being is a Peabody Award-winning public radio conversation and podcast, a Webby Award-winning website and online exploration, a publisher and public event convener. On Being opens up the animating questions at the center of human life: What does it mean to be human, and how do we want to live? We explore these questions in their richness and complexity in 21st-century lives and endeavors. We pursue wisdom and moral imagination as much as knowledge; we esteem nuance and poetry as much as fact.
Home of the Civil Conversations Project, On Being offers an emergent approach to new conversation and relationship across the differences of our age. On Being’s listeners, readers, and online communities cross boundaries that separate them in the culture at large: generational, socioeconomic, political, religious. They report that On Being equips them to relate in fresh, new ways to different others, and emboldens them to engage in new kinds of service.
