Faith in Nature: Noah’s Flood and the Development of Geology
March 26, 2015 | 4:15 PM
Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study
Lecture by David Montgomery, Professor of Earth and Space Sciences, University of Washington
The geologist David Montgomery explores the interface of science and religion through flood stories from cultures around the world.
Montgomery investigates the ever-changing nature of truth and how the work of early scientists, theologians, and natural philosophers—which we often assume to be at odds—actually led to important developments in their fields. While offering a robust defense of scientific inquiry, he takes us through the history of the polarized perspectives of science and creationism to show how religion shaped science and how science, in turn, influenced theology.
