If You Love Science, and Love God, You’ll Love This Event

Faith and science are often presented as being incompatible, but Catholics in the sciences know better
By Stephen Beale

A new interdisciplinary conference that will probe the connections between faith and science is being held this week at the Thomistic Institute at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, D.C.

The conference, which is co-hosted with the Society of Catholic Scientists, will bring together scholars in wide array of disciplines—including molecular biology, astronomy, organic chemistry and experimental condensed matter physics—to talk about issues on the forefront of science and religion. The conference runs from Wednesday through Friday.

‘There is a great hunger, particularly among students in the sciences, for coherent conversations on the relation of the Catholic faith and science,” said Father Thomas Davenport, a Dominican who holds a Ph.D. in physics from Stanford and is one of the presenters at the conference.’
