Can science and religion coexist?

Cycle D | And yet it moves! | Science and technology in the 21st century

March 30, 2011
19:00 - 21:00
Upper Stage
Can science and religion coexist, or are they condemned to eternal conflict?

Free entrance

The 21st century has brought with it an ever more pressing need to debate technological developments and advances in the natural sciences. Facing up to climate change beyond myths and exaggerations, the need to safeguard bio-diversity, revolutionary developments in the fields of genetics and biotechnology and the impact these will have on our lives are all areas in which we owe it to ourselves to stay fully informed. This thematic cycle will equip us with the knowledge we need to debate and act accordingly.
 
Can science and religion coexist? 
Is there or is there not a God? What is the place of religion in the public sphere today? Can science and religion coexist, or are they condemned to eternal conflict? Is faith waning, changing form or staging a powerful comeback? Is society set to become increasingly secular, or are its religious characteristics becoming more marked?
