The Faith-Science Discussion is an interdisciplinary group established by Southern Adventist University faculty to provide a context for discussing the complex issue of origins.
“Our campus has a commitment to creation,” says Greg King, dean of the School of Religion and convener of the meetings, “and we are unapologetic creationists, but we do not claim to have all the answers.”
The group comprises faculty members representing biology, chemistry, physics, computer science, religion, and the library. Meetings are held monthly. The group reads an article or book chapter on an origins-related issue and meets to discuss the reading, raise questions, and deepen their understanding of the topic at hand.
“Religion and science don’t need to be at odds,” says King. “We as scientists and theologians have a camaraderie. Our belief in the biblical perspective on origins is what binds us together.”
