Can Science and Religion coexist? For years this question has divided people
into two camps: those who look for answers to the “what, how, and when” questions, and
others who seek to understand the “why.”
Science is the pursuit of knowledge about the physical world through observation and
experimentation. Religion is the pursuit of meaning and purpose through a belief in God.
Today, there are many notable scientists who do believe that Science and Religion
can coexist. The documentary, “Science & Faith” features four scientists from different
disciplines and backgrounds who all share a strong faith in God. They wrestle with
questions about the conflict between science and faith, how their belief in God intersects
with their work, and how to view the Bible in light of their scientific knowledge.
The documentary will introduce you to: Dr. James Tourm, a synthetic organic chemist,
Dr. Pat Reiff, Professor of Physics and Astronomy, and the Director of the Rice Space
Institute at Rice University, Dr. Ian Hutchinson, Professor of Nuclear Science and
Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Dr. Jennifer Wiseman,
a senior astrophysicist and Senior Project Scientist for the Hubble Space Telescope.
