Br. Guy Consolmagno talked science and religion with William Shatner
In this TEDTalk, Consolmagno admits to being “a fanatic about his science and a nerd about his religion” and relates the conversation he had about both fields with William Shatner of Star Trek fame.
Consolmagno says we shouldn’t divide the universe into “the purely rational and the purely emotional” and explains that both science and religion start with observations and often have to move forward with “inadequate data” in order to help us get to the truth.
“At the end of the day, we only do science or we only have a religion as an act of worship, because both science and religion worship the same God, who is the God of truth.”
