Public Lecture at AUA Explores Commonalities Between Science and Religion
YEREVAN–On Thursday, March 14, the American University of Armenia (AUA) hosted a public lecture on “Nature as Contingent and Not Universal: Implications for Science and Religion,” by Dr. Lauri Ramey, a specialist in biblical history from the United States.
Dr. Ramey’s lecture explored how science and religion, two fields often thought to be opposed, can find commonalities. Because of a shared interest in history, theologians and scientists should be able to engage in constructive dialogue.
Dr. Ramey is a resident of Los Angeles, California and regularly teaches at local colleges and universities. He earned an M.Div. from Fuller Theological Seminary specializing in Theology. His Ph.D. is from the Center for Jewish and Christian Studies at Chicago Theological Seminary. His academic interests focus on the connections among biblical history, sacred texts, and religion and science.
