Denison Hosts "Science and Religion" Discussion
Posted: July 9, 2007
Denison University will host a discussion titled "Science and Religion" this Thursday (July 12) at 7 p.m. in the Burton D. Morgan Center Lecture Hall (Room 115). The discussion is open to the public, and snacks are provided.
Sponsored by Denison's chapter of the science honorary Sigma Xi, the topic was inspired by Gregory Graffin and William Provine's article "Evolution, Religion, and Free Will" that was published in the current issue of American Scientist. The discussion will involve the issue of whether science and religion are best described as "non-overlapping majesteria" (NOMA) and will be aided by writings and audio excerpts from leading scientists who favor and oppose NOMA, including Francis Collins, Steven Jay Gould, Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris.
