Lifetree Cafe topic: science and religion

Lifetree Cafe will present an exploration of the tension between science and religion at noon and 7 p.m. Tuesday at Cana, 18 S. Third St. Refreshments will be served.

The program, titled “Science and Religion: Can They Coexist?” features an exclusive filmed interview with the Vatican Observatory’s Guy Consolmagno.

Consolmagno, who holds a doctorate in planetary science, is curator of the Vatican meteorite collection in Castel Gandolfo and researches the origin and evolution of small bodies in the solar system.

Science and religion often appear to be at odds, said Lifetree representative Craig Cable, but the two camps may be closer than they appear.

“We’ll talk about where the two ideologies clash as well as complement each other,” said Cable.
