Ashland University Lecture Series to Look at Science and Religion

Ashland University Lecture Series to Look at Science and Religion

This fall, Ashland University will host a two-part lecture series titled “Genesis and Geology” that will look at the relationship between science and religion.

The perceived conflict between science and religion has grown steadily more divisive in America over the past few decades. Scientific truths now commonly questioned by some Christians include not only evolution, but also geologic time, the Big Bang and global warming. Despite this so-called cultural war, many Christians involved in scientific research and teaching find no conflict between their faith and modern science.

Audiences are advised that this production includes adult language and content.

The play is about three twenty-something roommates who are glued to their video games and have a hard time navigating the blurry line between their virtual and real worlds. They spend hours with people playing virtual war games and think they are their friends, but do they really know them. When one of them uses his gaming skills to land a job with the National Security Agency launching actual drones and missiles, he begins to realize that not everything is “just a game” and there are real consequences.
