Science and Religion as Ways of Knowing

Featuring: 
Eugenie C. Scott
Time: 
12:30am
Date: 
September 11, 2008
Location: 
Hall Auditorium
Miami University
Oxford, OH

A lecture sponsored by the Center for American and World Cultures at Miami University (Oxford, Ohio). To understand science and religion as ways of knowing, one must first define science and religion, and then determine the goals of each. Science is an attempt to explain the natural world using natural processes. Religions may also attempt to explain the natural world, but tend to be criticized when they try. Similarly, science is criticized when it attempts to supplant religion as a source of moral guidance. This lecture will discuss the controversy over creationism and evolution as an illustration of the misuse of both science and religion.
