The World through the Prism of Science and Religion: Perspectives, Possibilities, and Promises
A scientist who applies visual systems of honeybees to unmanned aerial vehicles, and a theologian who studies faith, baptism and conversion - both see the world differently. Does one discipline explain life's mysteries better than the other? Ordo they have common ground? Do they face similar challenges? And what do they promise for the future? These, among many others, are the puzzles our speakers will unravel.
