Why I Am an Astronomer and a Catholic
Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Delaware
On Monday, March 17, 2008 at 205 Hall, University of Delaware, Professor Dermott Mullan will continue the Catholics in Science Symposium with a talk that reflects on life as a working astronomer and a practicing Catholic, two identities which in some people's minds appear mutually exclusive.
This talk is free and open to all. It runs from 7-9pm. Refreshments will be served.
Hasn't modern astronomy proved that the account of the beginnings of our world in the Book of Genesis must be wrong? And hasn't the Catholic Church been opposed to science since the days of Galileo?
In his career as an astronomer, Professor Dermott Mullan has learned that the answer to both questions is a resounding "No." The God of the Astronomers is the same God Dr. Mullan has met in the Catholic Church and in the Bible.
The notion that science and faith are in conflict is a commonplace these days. But is it so?
