Normally, science and religion are assumed to be at odds. But tonight's Lecture Series lineup presents a much more optimistic picture, with Pulitzer Prize-winning scientist and writer, Edward O. Wilson, speaking alongside Hollis Professor of Divinity at Harvard University, Harvey Cox. Wilson's new work, The Creation ,
encourages discourse between religious leaders and the scientific community to preserve our quickly-deteriorating planet, while Cox's book, When Jesus Came to Harvard: Making Moral Choices Today,
translates Jesus' message into the context of current times. Simulcast tickets are still available!
Charlotte from Temple University wrote: "I am a Professor of Economics (Emerita) at Temple University. Economic theorists construct evolutionary models and cite Wilson in their work. I attended the lecture to hear Professor Wilson, but found Professor Cox more engaging. We are fortunate that Cox is using his leadership and motivational talent to facilitate collaboration between scientists and clergyman to preserve sentient life and other species on planet Earth."
