MIT professor presents Dalton Lecture on Jan. 27

The university’s Department of Biology and Chemistry invites you to join us for the 10th annual Dalton Lecture at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 27, in Bauman Auditorium. Admission is free.

The presentation, titled “The True Story of Science and Faith,” will be delivered by Ian Hutchinson, a professor of nuclear science and engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He will discuss how the widely presumed “warfare myth” that science and religion are at odds is a distortion of both science and faith.

In truth, Hutchinson argues, their relationship is a complex story that ultimately leads to the affirmation that God is revealed both in the “Book of His Word” (the Bible) and the “Book of His Works” (nature).

The lecture is one of two Hutchinson will present on campus. He will also speak at 3 p.m. that Monday afternoon on “Star Power! Scientific Frontiers of Fusion Energy” in Bauman Auditorium.
