This talk dispels caricatures of faithful flat-earthers, delves into the complex relationship between science and religion, and gives RE teachers of a framework for dialogue.

Secondary students often assume that Religion and Science are inextricably at odds. Even if they can't articulate exactly why, it is often taken for granted that a person of faith cannot embrace the scientific method and vice versa. This talk dispels caricatures of faithful flat-earthers, delves into the complex relationship between science and religion, considers seminal figures like Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, Darwin, and Georges Lamaitre, and gives a framework for understanding how science and religion are not mutually exclusive.
