Special Bulletin - Science Faith Weekend at The Center for Earth & Space Science Education

Special Bulletin
Fall 2013

Hello Friends,

  

As part of the 50th Anniversary celebration of The Center for Earth & Space Science Education at Tyler Junior College, we want to invite everyone to be part of Science/Faith Weekend. Two public events will be held this weekend. 


"America's Creation-Evolution Controversy" by Dr. Karl Giberson

When: Saturday, Nov 23 at 7:00PM
Where: Apache Rooms, Rogers Student Center, TJC Main Campus
Cost: Non-members - $5/seat; Members - free

Dr. Karl Giberson was raised in a fundamentalist parsonage to believe the universe was 10,000 years old, evolution was a conspiracy with no scientific foundation, and Darwin was evil. Studying physics in a Christian college convinced him that science was compatible with belief in God. In his talks Giberson shares his struggle to make peace with Darwin and the serious challenges it poses to traditional religious belief. Interwoven with his personal journey is the story of a deeply religious America wrestling with a science that is often used as a club to bash religion. 

Giberson received his Ph.D. in Physics from Rice University. He has published more than 200 reviews and essays, both technical and popular, in outlets that include NY Times, CNN.com, Huffington Post, the Guardian, USA Today, LA Times, Salon.com, Discover, Weekly Standard, Quarterly Review of Biology, Perspectives on Science & Faith, The Edge.org, and Books & Culture. He has written or co-authored 9 books (including Saving Darwin: How to be a Christian and Believe in Evolution), and contributed to many edited volumes.
