It was a pleasure to work with the Faraday Institute, Cambridge University, to put on talks relating faith to physics and biology at the start of this month. We also had a lot of fun digging deeply into related topics at the Dialogues in Science and Faith conference. Videos of all the talks will be posted soon.
Save the Dates
10th - 12th October Prof Peter Harrison from University of Queensland, Australia, will be visiting Hong Kong. He will give a public lecture on the Shifting Territories of Science and Religion. Watch this space for further details of his trip.
Science and religion have had a long and complex relationship over thousands of years. Their engagement is shaped by factors inherent to the areas of scientific and religious activity involved, as well as by the historical and cultural contexts. Academic scientists in Hong Kong are more religious than the general population, and yet the political, religious and scientific history of the region means that engagement between science and religion here is relatively in its infancy. In this setting, the Faith and Science Collaborative Research Forum seeks to develop and enrich the interactions between religion and science/engineering research in Hong Kong.
