Science and Religion
The image to the left is an original work by Richard Caemmerer and is titled “Baptism.” The dying star is from a Hubble Telescope photo. The landscape is the Pacific Ocean, and the Olympic Mountain Range. The waterfall, which connects them, is 240,000 light years high, suggesting a cosmic blessing.
Our intention for the Science and Religion Symposium is to periodically (3 times per year) offer presentations by professionals in various scientific and theological fields. By addressing critical topics for our times we want to mutually explore the evolving New Universe paradigm, give public voice to people who want to participate in this dialogue, and help gradually mend the unnecessary rift between science and religion.
Future topics include:
- How can the Science/Religion Dialogue be democratized so it isn’t owned by extremists on both sides?
- Exploring the Ethical Responsibilities of scientific proposols.
- Examining other ways of knowing reality – especially the Mystics of various traditions.
- Anomalies – the importance of seeing “failures”/aberrations as a creative resource for knowledge.
- Global Warming (and its political implications)
- DNA – how are we composed?
- Biological Dynamics of the Heart and Brain
- Scientific Aesthetics – how our bias for beauty and harmony distorts what we “see”
- Scientific Method/Hypothesis Testing – “you are never right”
- Mystical and Scientific Interpretations of Creation Stories.
For future events please keep an eye on the website for upcoming events, and send us your suggestions for any topics you want to explore.
