Event description

Description

Join Dr. Gabriel Filippelli (IUPUI Earth Sciences), Dr. Philip Goff (Center for the Study of Religion & American Culture), Rabbi Scott Fox (Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation), and Reverend Anastassia Zinke (All Souls Unitarian Church) in a conversation moderated by Jill Sheridan (WFYI) as they explore matters of science, faith, and the history of American thought. Facilitated small group conversations will give attendees the chance to deeply explore what it means when fact and faith collide.

The community is invited to share in a conversation about how advances in science have shaped, altered, and sometimes been ignored, by religion. How has scientific thought challenged and influenced religious teachings and practice? From the ways in which heliocentrism shook the Catholic Church to the continued polarization caused by Darwin’s theory of evolution, science and faith collide in profound ways. As science marches on – what if we discovery sentient life beyond Earth? – how will the worlds’ religions react and be affected?

Presented by IUPUI Department of Earth Sciences, IUPUI Center for the Study of Religion & American Culture, IUPUI Senior Academy, Earth Charter Indiana, Hoosier Environmental Council, Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation, All Souls Unitarian Church, and Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library.
