Topic: How do faith and science intersect with regard to bio-ethics, both historically and today? Can science and faith actually work together to establish better bio-ethical norms? Can we navigate the historic tensions between science and faith to find a better way forward for all humanity?

Professor, Bioethicist, and Pediatrician, Dr. Tyler Tate (MD, MA) leads this public conversation alongside Pastor and Consider Project founder, David Evanger (MDiv, MPAcc) to find the life-giving intersection of Science, Religion, and Ethics.

What is B&B? We live in a historic moment of highly educated and astute thinkers, yet there remains many beautifully elusive ideas that the strongest minds still struggle to grasp. At The Bear & The Butterfly Forums we highlight one such idea and openly grapple with it from perspectives of science, philosophy, and faith. Then we open it up for the audeince to respond and interact. 

More on Dr. Tate: In conjunction with his Fellowship in Clinical Ethics at University of Washington/Seattle Children’s Treuman Katz Center and his fellowship in Hospice and Palliative Medicine at Duke University, Dr. Tate has spoken and written extensively on the subject of bio-ethics.

SUGGESTED DONATION: $15 (read about the Consider Project below to learn why we ask for donations)

The Consider Project mission is to start big conversations in the city so that matters of greatest concern are considered by the people for the flourishing of all people both here and abroad. We ask for a donation at each Consider Project event, not to cover event costs (which are pre-paid), but so that from our privileged position to consider we might pay it forward to marginalized peoples elsewhere who do not have these basic freedoms of consideration. Our consideration of big ideas should never be isolated from our consideration...
