Teaching Style      
  ZOOM Flip Classroom Format  
  The COVID-19 PANDEMIC does allow for in class discussions between students and instructors. However, thanks to the ZOOM conferencing platform, we will be able to meet online. Every week students listen to about 1.5 hours of audio-slide lectures online, and then once a week they come to class for lecture summaries and class discussions.  
  Course Description      
  Are science and religion at war? Or is a peaceful relationship possible? Topics include:  Models for Relating Science and Religion,  Scientific Evidence for Evolution, Intelligent Design in Nature,  Galileo’s Religious Beliefs, Darwin’s Religious Beliefs, Interpretations of the Biblical Creation Accounts in Genesis 1-3,  and the Modern “Evolution” vs. “Creation” Debate.  
  None. Just interest in the topic!
