The Templeton Foundation and the American Scientific Affiliation has announced a national lecture series to demonstrate the "link" between science and religion. Hosted by churches, the lectures will take place in 10 cities. Headquartered in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, the Templeton foundation "encourages progress in religious thinking and greater spiritual growth worldwide." It was founded in 1987 by John M. Templeton, an international investment counselor. The American Scientific Affiliation, headquartered in Ipswich, Mass., is a national organization of 2500 Christians with degrees in science who are "committed to examining science within a framework of faith." The Templeton-ASA Lecture Series was initiated in 1991 by John M. Templeton. It brings together scientists to discuss the evidence of a "purposeful Creator at work in the universe revealed through their research in the areas of bioethics, psychology, astrophysics, genetics, cosmology, and physiology." According to Mr. Templeton, "The scientific and religious communities both have a history of operating under the assumption that science and religion cannot co-exist. We have assembled a group of scientists at the forefronts of their research fields who believe science and faith can and must work together." --Robin Murray-O'Hair, Sysop, American Atheists Online * WCE 2.0/2394 * Jesus Christ: Imaginary Playmate to Millions of Adults! *********************************************************************** * * * American Atheists website: * * PO Box 140195 FTP: * * Austin, TX 78714-0195 * * Voice: (512) 458-1244 Dial-THE-ATHEIST: * * FAX: (512) 467-9525 (512) 458-5731 * * * * Atheist Viewpoint TV: * * Info on American Atheists:, * * & American Atheist Press include your name and mailing address * * AANEWS -Free subscription: * * and put "info aanews" in message body * * * * This text may be freely downloaded, reprinted, and/other * * otherwise redistributed, provided appropriate point of * * origin credit is given to American Atheists. * * * ***********************************************************************
