Science and Religion: Why the Debates Have Been So Intense
David Ray Griffin, PhD, will discuss the conflicts between two great truths.
When: Monday, Feb. 6, 2012, 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Where: Trinity Episcopal Church, 1500 State St. , Santa Barbara

While holding that science and religion should be harmonious, Dr. Griffin argues, there are conflicts for one of two reasons. Either Christian faith is interpreted in such a way as to contradict scientific naturalism, which is a great truth. Or scientific naturalism is interpreted in such a way as to contradict the primary doctrines of Christian faith, which constitute another great truth.
A professor (emeritus) at Claremont School of Theology, Dr. Griffin has written several books on science and religion, including Two Great Truths: A New Synthesis of Scientific Naturalism and Christian Faith.
There will be ample time for discussion following Dr. Griffin's presentation.
