Reason" is an hour-length documentary about the interaction
between science and religion, both historically and today. Through
interviews with leading scientists and theologians, the program
explores the history of the relationship between these two fields,
and reveals that, contrary to widespread popular opinion, for
most of history science and religion have been deeply entwined.
Moreover, the program looks at a growing movment of scientists
and theologians around the world today who believe that faith
and reason can support one another. Here we consider issues in
evolutionary biology, cosmology, genetics, and technology.
So far most of
the people involved in this movement have been working in a Christian
context, so that is what we focus on in this program. But issues
raised by science ultimately affect people of all faith traditions
and we hope the program and website will be of value to believers
from many different religions.
Reason" is hosted by internationally noted science writer
Margaret Wertheim, who has written widely about this subject
in books and magazine articles. Ms Wertheim is the author of
the pieces on this site.
