What Does Science Prove?: Topics at the Intersection of Science and Religion

This course aims to develop both a better understanding of the world through studying a rich array of empirical research and a better understanding of key theological claims, particularly those that have an empirical component. Some of the themes that we investigate in this course include: the origins of the universe, cognitive psychology of religious belief, human uniqueness and immortality, artificial intelligence, moral responsibility and neuroscience, and the historical Adam.
