The American Scientific Affiliation (ASA) has just begun to post audio podcasts of the talks from their 65th Annual Meeting: Science, Faith, and Public Policy (Catholic University in America, Washington, D.C.). I’d encourage you to check out their library.
Three presentations which I found of particular value and commend to you are …
- Experiences of a Scientist-Christian in the Washington Fishbowl
- An Introduction to a Systematic Theology of Medicine
- Seeking Other Earths: Exoplanets and the Significance of Life
If you have comments on any of these presentations, please post them here. If you’d prefer a private on-line discussion group on one of these presentations, let me know.
Note 1: Files of many of the presentation slides will also be posted on the ASA site. We’ll keep you up-to-date. In addition, interviews of several ASA presenters are in process for posting on the ESN blog. As you may remember, we already have posted
- Interview: Ted Davis, the Story of a Historian of Science (21.208) and History of Science Recommendations from Ted Davis
- Interview: Jimmy Lin, Medical and Scientific Doxologist
Note 2: If you’re a student in the sciences (or interested in the sciences), don’t miss the ASA’s special student rate of $20 a year. To learn more about the benefits of membership click here. Might make a good item to request as a birthday or Christmas gift. Just an idea ;-)
Note 3: ESN’s looking forward to more conversations on the relationship of science-faith on the blog AND at next year’s ASA mtgs, which will be hosted by North Central College, in the Chicago area, July 29 – Aug 1, 2011. Mark your calendars!
