This webinar will help advance our understanding of the harmony between science and religion. Four panel members from the Wilmette Institute course on Science, Religion, and the Bahá’í Faith will speak on how insights from the Bahá’í Writings together with insights from the sciences–physics, cosmology, evolutionary theory and the social sciences–relate to the need for spiritual development and help contribute to discourses on various topics or issues facing humanity. The panelists will address the importance of diversity, learning about learning, social values, the scientific method, and consultation within the realm of science. They will conclude that studying topics from both scientific and religious perspectives contributes to more effective discourse, better decision-making, and social justice.
The discussion facilitators will be Charlotte Wenninger and Andres Elvira, both currently serving as teaching assistants for the Science, Religion, and the Bahá’í Faith course.
