Belligerents or Brothers? Faith and Science Examined: Science and religion are locked in eternal conflict - or so we are told. Prof. Ian Hutchinson, professor of nuclear science and engineering at MIT, disagrees. In a pair of lectures, Prof. Hutchinson will draw on his own experience as a research scientist and from the history of the relationship between science and religion to demonstrate that, far from being opposed to one another, the knowledge we gain from science and faith may complement and benefit one another. Prof. Hutchinson’s second lecture will explore a case study in cooperation between science and theology from his own work addressing the challenges of sustainable energy. This free event will be held on February 17 from 10am to 3pm (lunch is provided), at MIT (Building E51, Room 345), and is sponsored by Boston Fellows and RUF. Space is limited; please RSVP @ to reserve your spot! Contact Nathan Barczi ( with questions.
