God Science and Humanity
This one day conference will run from 10 till about four when Evening Prayer will follow
and will include a boxed luncheon.
It will be held at the Church of St Francis Potomac near Washington DC, and will bring together several notable experts including
Dr. William Phillips Nobel Laureate in Physics
and recipient of the Albert A. Michelson Medal from The Franklin Institute, based at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) & University of Maryland
Dr Paul Julienne, Physicist and emeritus of NIST, and member of the Joint Quantum Institute of the University of Maryland and regular contributor to biologos online and the Anglican Way.
Dr Michael Hanby, Associate Professor of Religion and Philosophy of Science at the Pontifical John Paul II Institute, at the Catholic University of America in Washington DC.
Speakers will discuss the ways in which their understanding of science and faith are complementary rather than in tension and that belief in a transcendent creator God has greater explanatory adequacy in relation to the world of our experience than agnostic or atheist alternatives.
Coordinating the day will be:
The Revd. Canon Alistair Macdonald-Radcliff (on behalf of the Prayer Book Society) former President of the Oxford University Natural Philosophy Society, and Quondam Dean of All Saints' Cathedral Cairo (whose research area in Oxford was in Philosophy of Religion under Richard Swinburne and Fr. Brian Davies O.P.)
The Revd Fr. Mark A. Michael, Rector of the Parish of St. Francis Potomac, educated at the Universities of Duke and Oxford and a prominent contributor to the Living Church and The Covenant weblog.
It is apposite to cite the striking words that concluded Professor William D. Phillips' - Nobel Lecture :
Finally, I thank God for providing such a
wonderful and intriguing world for us to explore,....
