Nature’s Scripture: The Interfaith Promise of Science

September 24 @ 8:00 pm 9:00 pm

An adaptation of JD’s talk from the Parliament of the World’s Religions, for the Abilene Interfaith Council of Abilene Texas. Talk description:

Underlying the human world of strife and separation is an oft-neglected landscape of commonality between faiths: the natural world. At precisely the time when our religious and political divisions threaten the existence of life on Earth, science offers a sweeping interfaith vista filled with revelations and insights as spiritually meaningful as ancient scriptures. Read as “scripture,” science offers a common text for all the world’s faiths.
