Science as Myth Topic of Lecture

Lisa Sideris, associate professor in the Department of Religious Studies at Indiana University, will deliver the 4th Annual Kripke Center Religion and Environment Lecture at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 3, in room 3023 of the Harper Center on the Creighton campus.

The lecture is free and open to the public.

Sideris’ lecture titled, “Science a Myth: Ecospirituality in the Anthropocene Age,” will discuss the relationship of science to religion and Dark Green Religion.

Author of Environmental Ethics, Ecological Theology and Natural Selection, and co-editor of Rachel Carson: Legacy and Challenge, Sideris’ research focuses on the intersection of religion, science and environmental ethics. She especially looks at the conflict and compatibility between scientific and religious interpretations of nature and natural processes. Currently, Sideris is researching evolution conflicts both past and present.

The lecture is part of the University’s Second Annual St. Francis Feast Day celebration, which will culminate with a Mass and signing of the St. Francis Pledge to Protect Creation and the Poor at noon on Friday, Oct. 4 in St John's Church on the Creighton campus.
