Building on AAAS's long-standing commitment to relate scientific knowledge and technological development to the purposes and concerns of society at large, the Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Religion (DoSER) facilitates communication between scientific and religious communities. 

 

 

 
 

Science & Theological Education

Science and technology affect nearly every aspect of our modern lives. A significant portion of citizens seek guidance on such issues from a trusted religious leader; however, many pastors and religious leaders don't feel prepared to discuss science because, in many cases, their own experience with it has been limited. They may not have encountered science in their theological education, nor do they have reliable sources for current scientific information scoped for their needs.

DoSER is working with partner seminaries to provide support and resources to seminary professors to encourage informed dialogue and a positive understanding of science among future religious leaders. Integrating science into seminary education will not only benefit professors and students, but ultimately those in the pews who are interested in the discoveries and implications of science.
