Noted Author George Sim Johnston to Speak on One of Today's Most Controversial Topics, Monday, February 4 at 7:30pm,


Basilica Parish of Sacred Hearts of Jesus & Mary, Southampton


 


The supposed conflict between science and religion is a staple of modern discourse, especially in this day and age. But does this conflict really exist?


Learn more at a fascinating talk by noted author George Sim Johnston at a special guest lecture evening at the Basilica Parish of Sacred Hearts of Jesus & Mary , 168 Hill Street, Southampton, NY 11968 on February 4, 2013 at 7:30 pm.


 


Award winning writer George Sim Johnston will lead the audience in a look at Darwin's theory of evolution and the question of human origins; the controversial Galileo Affair (which history books still see as the definitive parting of ways between science and religion) and suggest ways of reading the creation account in the Book of Genesis> The talk will take a cue form the 17th Century philosopher Francis Bacon: A little science can lead us away from God, while a fuller understanding of it leads us back again.
