You are invited to a panel discussion on building trust between scientists and Christians. It is related to the IU themester of “Evolution, Diversity and Change” and is on the official themester calendar.
The panelists will each give brief opening statements (10 min.) followed by about an hour of Q&A.
More details are below.
What: Panel Discussion “Can a Biologist Trust an Evangelical Christian?”
When: Nov. 12 at 7:00 PM
Where: Indiana Memorial Union, Dogwood Room
Why: We believe there should be no conflict between science and faith, because God is the author of both. We believe that Christians can and should explore the natural world and have the courage to accept that evolution is the best scientific explanation of evidence spanning billions of years into the past and within our own DNA. To this end, we hope to engage in the spirit of IU’s Themester by hosting an academic discussion, open to all who are interested, with panelists who are Christians and scholars, and who wish to build trust between the academy and Christianity.
