The Palmer Seminary Science and Religion Symposium is an annual event, exploring the relationship between science and religion and the many ways that they impact our lives. This year's event will be held on our St. Davids Campus in the McInnis Auditorium between 9am and 5pm on September 24th, 2022.
This year, we will be asking the central question, "What does it mean to be human?" To help us approach an answer, we will spend the morning discussing human evolution. After lunch, we will look to the future of artificial intelligence and biological augmentation. Each session will feature a panel of local experts and a special keynote speaker. Admission is free and it will be livestreamed as well.
The symposium comes as part of Palmer’s selection to participate in the Science for Seminaries project. The project is made possible by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) through their Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Religion (DoSER) program, in partnership with the Association of Theological Schools (ATS).
