|Forum for Conversations in Theology and Science|
The University of Sioux Falls Forum for Conversations in Theology and Science began in 2006 through a Metanexus Institute grant. Today the conversations continue thanks to the generosity of Dr. and Mrs. Bob and Betty Jo Roberts. This forum is dedicated to furthering conversation on the interchange between theology and science among USF faculty, students and members of neighboring academic, religious and scientific communities.
Presentations and discussions of selected topics are open to the public and meant to foster dialogue and understanding on such matters as consciousness and the soul, non-materialistic approaches to physics and cosmology, evolution and human origins, medicine and healthcare and other issues pertinent to the relationship between theology and the natural sciences.
Previous years have explored the History of the Theology/Science Conversation, Theology and the Physical Sciences, Theology and Evolution, Theology and the Self, and Theology and Neuroscience. The theme for 2015 is Mathematics, Beauty and God: Theology and the Language of the Universe. Sessions include two forums presented by local faculty, as well as a keynote event featuring Dr. James Bradley, Professor Emeritus of Mathematics and Computer Science at Calvin College.
