CBB: Hot Buttons, Cool Conversations Discussion Series

Leventhal-Sidman JCC
Is Science Replacing God?
Are science and religion forever locked in conflict or can they coexist? On issues from evolution and the big bang to new advances in technology and medicine, religion and science are often at odds. Our Jonathan Samen Hot Buttons, Cool Conversations Discussion Series will tackle some of the most controversial breakthroughs in science, including gene editing and advancements towards immortality. What happens as our ethical and religious institutions struggle to keep up with science’s latest developments? We address the weighty questions asking if science refutes religion or if they are two separate issues. Join us for a panel discussion on Thursday, February 1 from 7:30-9pm at the Leventhal-Sidman Center (333 Nahanton Street) in Newton. Go to for more information and to purchase a ticket.
