Science and Faith (SACT and SACT+)

Science and Faith (SACT and SACT+)

Science and Christianity have done more to shape our understanding of the world and the way we live than any other cultural and intellectual movements. Yet together they raise profound questions.
Does science demolish faith or deepen it? How can a serious scientist be a committed Christian? How should we understand the Big Bang, evolution, miracles, God, ourselves, or artificial intelligence? We will look at these questions, and others, from theological, scientific, historical and philosophical perspectives. This is an introductory yet thought-provoking course, aimed primarily at those new to this area. Taught by Canon Tim Bull, who holds two PhDs: one in computer science and the other in theology.

Tutor: The Revd Canon Dr Tim Bull, Tutor in Science and Theology
