BIOL 2140 Capstone Science and Religion: Contemporary Issues (Fall: 3 )
Is it possible for a contemporary scientist to be a believer in God and, in particular, a Christian believer? This course will explore the interaction between religion and science from early modern times (Galileo and Newton) to the present (Hawking, Peacocke, Teilhard de Chardin). The origin of the universe and the origin and evolution of life on earth will be explored. The influence of contemporary physics and biology on the believer's understanding of God's interaction with the world will be considered.
