Today, Mike Collins is joined by Father George Coyne, the Director of the Observatory at the Vatican in Rome.  Coyne is an internationally known astronomer and speaker who believes science and religion are not in conflict; in fact, he says that science reflects God’s “infinite purpose.”  Join us for the conversation.

  1. I heard Father Coyne speak in Greensboro at the summer 2007 AAPT (American Association of Physics Teachers) meeting and was delighted with his talk. I’ll be teaching a class during the live broadcast and thus can’t listen, but I’ll catch the rebroadcast Monday evening. I’m curious to know Father Coyne’s reaction to Richard Dawkins’ recent book The God Delusion.

  2. How does the Catholic Church rationalize IVF (science) vs. abortion (science)?

  3. I would recommend a book called ‘Finding Darwin’s God’ by Kenneth Miller. Miller is a professor of biology, believes firmly in evolution, and also believes in God. He states, “The conflict between these two versions of our history is real, and I do not doubt for a second that it needs to be addressed. What I do not believe is that the conflict is unresolvable.”
