Faculty Panel Discussion on Faith and Science | SLS 2019

March 7, 2019 - 3:30pm | Flaherty Community Room

Although some suggest a conflict between faith and science or faith and reason, some scholars manage to bridge the alleged divide. Members of the Mount Mercy University faculty will talk about how their faith lives and their academic professions coexist.

Led by Dr. Bryan Cross

Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Mount Mercy University

This event is a part of the 2019 Spring Lecture Series | Faith/Reason/Science: Friends or Foes?

Recent studies conducted by the Pew Research Center confirm what many of us have experienced anecdotally—one of the top reasons young people abandon their Christian faith is because they think it conflicts with science. Perhaps this had been influenced by some scientists, labelled the New Atheists, who claim all religious faith is irrational by its very nature.

Join us this spring to discuss these issues with three nationally known Catholic scholars of the intersection of faith, science, and reason. Are science and religion necessarily in conflict? Can faith and science benefit each other? What is the relationship between faith and reason? 

Explorations in Faith & Reason is a new spring lecture series that combines Mount Mercy’s President's Lecture, Hesburgh Lecture, and Aquinas Lecture. For more information, visit mtmercy.edu/faith-reason.
