“Science and the Christian Faith” is the debut event for the new “Faith and Culture” series.

The goals of the “Faith and Culture” series are for believers to become more conversant, convictional, and confident in discussing various topics where faith and culture intersect in our society.

The “Faith and Culture: Science and the Christian Faith” event focuses on discussion surrounding the following two topics:

  • “Are science and the Christian faith incompatible?”
  • “How should Christians share their faith with people who use science as an attack on Christianity?”

There will be a question and answer session for each topic.

Facilitators

Brian_ChristyDr. Brian J. Christy holds a Ph.D. in particle astrophysics from the University of Maryland – College Park where he worked on the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole. His thesis was searching for magnetic monopoles. Brian holds undergraduate degrees in physics and applied math, along with a minor in philosophy, from Auburn University. He currently works as a post-doctoral researcher at Franklin and Marshall College on NANOGrav, an experiment that is attempting to measure low-frequency gravitational waves by studying the best clocks in space – millisecond pulsars. While at F&M, he has taught courses in Cosmology and Introductory Astronomy.

Brian’s interest in science and faith is motivated by his love for Jesus and growing up in a household with a father who held both a Master of Divinity (M.Div.) and a Ph.D. in atmospheric science.
