Current Challenges in Science and Faith

27 Apr–1 May 2020 (Mon–Fri)

We will provide a broad overview of some of the big current challenges relating to science and faith. For example: Should we use the latest science to enhance human abilities? Are we slaves to our genes and to our neurons? What about evolution? Does biology display purpose? If so, what about suffering? If you want an overview of the current state of play in these and other big challenges, then this week is for you!
