In this episode we are going to talk about a bunch of different topics in the larger science and religion conversation. Topics include cosmic history, divine action, the history of religions, astrotheology, and even extraterrestrial life. We are joined by a living legend in the field, Ted Peters. Ted is a Research Professor at the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences. He is Research Professor Emeritus in Systematic Theology and Ethics at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary.
You can check out his personal website for an overview of all his different work.
The Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences has a bunch of resources. Below are links to a few articles of Dr. Peters that touch our conversation: “From Big History to Cosmic History” , “Introducing Astrotheology”, “Science and Religion: Ten Models of War, Truce, and Partnership”, “Should CRISPR Scientists Play God?”, “Transhumanism and the Posthuman Future: Will Technological Progress Get Us There?”
