Forum Teologi Naturvidenskab / Danish Science-Theology Forum
University of Aarhus
This group, numbering over 200 individuals, has existed since 1980. A series of 8 public lectures per year are offered, focusing on broadly significant topics, with interest to the scholar as well as the public. Independent study groups involve students and professionals from Aarhus University, University Hospital, area high schools, and members of the public, exploring specifically chosen topics with more depth once per month. Considerations include matters such as evolution, consciousness and religion; generosity; historical and contemporary perspectives of religion with regard to natural science; modern physics and cosmology; brain research; health care; and evolutionary biology. A program involving both scientists and theologians presenting views for discussion is offered for presentation to local high schools, student pastors and scientists and any interested groups. Each year culminates in an annual Symposium, with emphasis on a chosen international figure, including panel discussions and presentations of study groups.
