Science, technology and religion
- basic knowledge of science
This course examines the relations between science and religion as well as the implications for our use of technology. Many have seen a conflict but this course will propose some different ways of viewing how science and religion can go together. Technology seems to be replacing religion because we rely on our tools instead of praying to God! However, some religious perspectives welcome technology as a way to help people. Some of these thoughts are developed further in my books "Is God a Scientist?" and "Deus in Machina" available on Amazon.

I have taught college and university courses in Europe and Canada for the past 20 years. My Ph.D. is from the University of St. Michael's College at the University of Toronto. In my Master's degree (at Conrad Grebel College) I wrote a thesis on technology and theology (which is the basis for my thoughts in this course).
