CARROLLTON, GA -- The College of Arts and Sciences and the Department of English and Philosophy at the University of West Georgia are sponsoring an "Inter-Religious Panel on Faith and Science" on Tuesday, Oct. 5 at 7:30 p.m. in Kathy Cashen Recital Hall on the UWG campus.
The discussion will feature four UWG professors from the areas of chemistry, biology and physics who will talk about the relation of faith and science. One popular view suggests that one cannot affirm religious claims and scientific truths. Others disagree, believing that both can be taken seriously. The panel will explore how scientists of faith deal with issues that arise when the two subjects converge.
Panelists will include Dr. Megumi Fujita (chemistry), Dr. Javier Hasbun (physics), Dr. Farooq Khan (chemistry) and Dr. S. Swamy-Mruthinti (biology).
The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 678-839-6294.
