The Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life hosted a panel about the relationship between the natural sciences and theology on Tuesday. This event was largely in response to a controversial Vatican document that instructs Catholic schools on how to deal with issues surrounding gender identity.
The Boisi Center works to bring rigorous thinkers to campus and develop an understanding of the common good through a religious lens.
Having an open mind and understanding other people’s perspectives were two skills discussed at the event.
Professors examined the ways in which religious beliefs will affect the voting polls.
“I feel that these conversations aren’t as effective as they could be because there is not an audience there that needs to be there,” Najat Goso, MCAS ’17, said.
The main question of the evening will be defining the millennial generation and what it means to grow up in a world filled with massive amounts of technology that expose the young generation to what is going on in the world.
