STUDENT LECTURE AT CONCORDIA
Andrew Wiens, a senior at Concordia College, will present a lecture as part of the Student Lecture Series at 7 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 23 in Birkeland Alumni Lounge. The lecture, “The Parallel Endeavors of Quantum Mechanics and Theology: Knowing on the Fringes of Reality,” is free and open to the public.
Wiens explores the incompatibility of science and religion and the belief in God. He’ll discuss the parallels between quantum mechanics and theology and the idea that science itself contributes to the mystery of God.
The Student Lecture Series recognizes students who do outstanding research work in a discipline and provides them with the opportunity to share their results in an informal presentation. Wiens’ faculty sponsor is Dr. Ernest Simmons, professor of religion.
Concordia College is a four-year liberal arts college of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America offering 78 majors, including 18 honors majors, and 12 preprofessional programs.
