I'm going to be quite brief today because I want you to have time to read as much as you can of a transcript of a fascinating conference on science and religion held last month.
As regular readers of this blog know, I've had a long-term interest in the dialogue that science and religion should be having. This conference that produced the transcript to which I'm linking you today was held in Florida and sponsored by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life.
