Science, Faith, & Original Sin (McEwan & Opperman in Toronto)

Event Date: 
Tuesday, November 13, 2018 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

FREE PUBLIC EVENT: CSCA presents a special event with Mark McEwan (Project Development Officer, CSCA) and Timothy Opperman (Student & Early Career Rep., CSCA).

Are science and faith generally in conflict, or can we faithfully relate them? What about specific difficulties, such as reconciling modern biology with the Bible? Join the Canadian Scientific and Christian Affiliation (CSCA) for a special evening of science-faith discussion. Mark McEwan (Project Development Officer, CSCA) will briefly consider the usual ways of understanding the science-religion relationship, responding with an approach for relating science and theology without letting one displace, or replace, the other. He will contrast boundary violations between science and theology with mutually beneficial, asymmetrical partnership. Tim Opperman (Student & Early Career Rep., CSCA) will follow up by focussing on a specific science-faith issue, looking at evolutionary understandings of morality and a biblical understanding of sin. A joint Q&A discussion session will follow.
