7:00 p.m Alumni Hall 400 — 121 St. Joseph Street, Toronto
How does religion work in a society shaped by science and technology? How do scientists and engineers practice their religions? How in particular does a Jesuit brother, and an MIT graduate with a PhD in planetary science, make sense of his Catholicism?
God‘s Mechanics examines the personal religious life and theology of scientists and engineers based on conversations in California’s Silicon Valley and a ﬁrst-person confession from a Jesuit scientist and astronomer at the Vatican Observatory.
