On Wednesday this week, Fourth Form attended the ‘God and the Big Bang’ event at Guildford Cathedral. They heard from scientists about their research into finding better treatments for heart attacks and cancer, understanding earthquakes, and investigating decision making in the brain. These led to some really fascinating philosophical discussions about free will, why God allows natural disasters, and the values that influence investment in different kinds of scientific research. Practical activities included collecting some of their own DNA. Each of the scientist spoke about how their science fits with their faith, with the common message being that faith and science can work together.
