From Socrates to the Big Bang

Carl Helrich

September 8, 10, 15, 17; 10:00-11:30 am

Jennings Auditorium, Greencroft Goshen Community Center

Studies in the intersection of science and religion from the beginnings of science to the 21st century – for nonscientists. We will begin from before Socrates, consider major figures from the ancient Greeks, Copernicus’ conflict and with Lutherans, and then Galileo and on to Newton – himself an amateur theologian. From there we will move to the 20th century, the Big Bang, and some modern writers on the intersection of science and religion. Helrich brings to this study a full career in research in theoretical and experimental physics both here and in Europe, teaching at a major university and Mennonite colleges, and 19 years in religion and science.
