Faraday Institute

Today I went to a talk by John Wood, based on the question "Is Man a Machine?". The talk in a nutshell discussed the uncertainty inherent in scientific measurement and human perception, the difference between man and machine being freedom, and that Christ sets us free to question, to investigate and to think.

He also directed us to the Faraday Institute for Science and Religion, particularly the recently developed resource Test of Faith. This resource contains interviews with a number of leading scientists and theologians discussing the connections between the two fields and what they each can offer. In addition, the Faraday Institute website itself contains a large number of audio and video recordings of lectures discussing the interface between religion and science, and published documents on the subject also.
