Event description

Description

The Topic: Can science and religious faith work together to cultivate better bioethical norms? What is the relationship between science and religious faith, both historically and today? Can we navigate the historic tensions between science and religion to find a better way forward for human life?

Dr. Tyler Tate, assistant professor of pediatrics and associate director of the Center for Ethics at Oregon Health and Science University, will lead this public conversation alongside Pastor and Consider Project founder, David Evanger (MDiv, MPAcc). Their aim will be to identify and illuminate life-giving ideas that lie at the intersection of Science, Religion, and Ethics.

What is B&B? We live in a historic moment of highly educated and astute thinkers, yet there remains many beautiful yet elusive ideas that the strongest minds struggle to grasp. At each The Bear & The Butterfly Forum we focus on one idea and openly grapple with it, utilizing perspectives from science, philosophy, and faith. A critical part of B&B is audience engagement and there will be substantial time to question, respond to, and interact with the speakers.

More on Dr. Tate: Dr. Tate is a practicing pediatric palliative care physician, writer, and ethicist. He holds undergraduate degrees in philosophy and molecular biology and a master's degree in bioethics from the University of Washington. Dr. Tate has spoken and written extensively on the subject of medical ethics, with a particular focus on suffering, language, disability, the virtues, and the role of love in healthcare.
