Keynote Speaker: John Lennox
There's been a bit of activity of late surrounding popular concerns over chemicals and their proliferation in our lives.
Unfortunately, scientists and their science communicator brethren have made a dog's breakfast of trying to bring a bit of light and clarity to the discussion.
...[Prof. Tom] McLeish’s task was to set the scene for the week, exploring the relationship between science and religion. He spent much of the time looking at two questions: ‘What is science?’ and ‘What is religion?’
The main point of his talk was that the problem with the science and religion dialogue can be found in the word ‘and’. When we use the phrase ‘science and religion’, are we setting up a separation between the two that is not necessary? What do we mean when we relate the two together?
Myth or Truth?
