Annual Summerhays lecture to consider "Time in Scripture and Science" March 31

The College of Physical and Mathematical Science and Religious Education at Brigham Young University will host the Hyrum B. Summerhays Lecture on Science and Religion Friday, March 31, at 7 p.m. in the Joseph Smith Building auditorium.

J. Ward Moody, a professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy and director of the physical science program, will speak on “Time in Scripture and Science: A Conciliatory Key?”

Admission is free and the public is welcome.

Moody will focus his lecture on the debate between science and religion on issues of time in such events as the earth’s creation. He will also discuss the possibility of finding reconciliation between the different time lines.

This is the sixth lecture in the Hyrum B. Summerhays Lecture Series. The lectureship provides students, faculty and others an opportunity to learn more about the relationship between science and religion.
