Today Mr Dungan’s Leaving Cert Religion class joined our Applied Maths class for a discussion on Religion and Science. It started off very slowly but got a little heated before too long and the feedback was fairly positive with most students hoping we would repeat the exercise later in the year, but possibly in a more structured format.
I said I would post up relevant links, so here they are. The first two are the ones I showed on the day:
Richard Feynman on Religion & Mysticism
Uncertainty about the Big Bang
(I paused the clip when the scientists started going into detail on String Theory)
I think if we’re running this again two issues we might look at are
1. free will
2. Creationism and Evolution (just enter “Ceationism and evolution” in a youtube search) but be wary, there are lots.
