Ted Davis, Professor of the History of Science, Messiah College
Matthew Goodrum, Associate Professor of Science, Technology, and Society, Virginia Tech
If the “warfare” view of science and religion model is historically untenable, how do we understand the relationship between Christianity and science? In this lecture, Dr. Ted Davis will contend the Christian faith complements the picture of the world coming from the sciences. He will argue Christianity can help us achieve a deeper understanding of the way the world is and how we should go about understanding it—offering both a powerful motive for investigating nature and a foundation for the very possibility of scientific knowledge. Dr. Matthew Goodrum will provide a response, followed by questions from the audience.
