The question of whether faith and science are compatible will be explored in a lecture by University of Saint Francis professor Dr. Alex Giltner.
“The God of the Atheists and the God of Science,” will be presented Wednesday, Oct. 16, at 7 p.m., in the Parkview Physicians Group Auditorium, Room 226 of Achatz Hall of Science and John and Toni Murray Research Center, 2701 Spring St. The free event is sponsored by the USF Department of Philosophy and Theology and the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Dr. Giltner will explore the following: Does science disprove the existence of God? Has faith been eclipsed in the modern world? Are believers hanging on to a bygone superstition?
In his lecture, Dr. Giltner will demonstrate that “far from being combatants, faith and science are actually rather comfortable bedfellows, and when atheists claim science disproves the existence of God, they are making a claim that takes just as much faith as any believer, if not more.”
