The quest for consonance: theology and the natural sciences

What is the relationship between faith and reason, theology and philosophy, religion and science?
The Quest for Consonance: Theology and the Natural Sciences is a Catholic conference being held right now at the University of Notre Dame. Their program is quite impressive. I’ll post a link to the talks when it becomes available.


So people won’t leave empty-handed (or empty-eyed?) … I thought I’d post this very short trailer produced by The Smithsonian, about the fossil rich territories of South Africa …
