BREAKING THE SHELL, October 12, 2019:
Connecting the Spiritual Cascade to the Physical with New Church Science
A Theistic Science Symposium hosted by the Swedenborg Scientific Association and the Theistic Science Group. Saturday, October 12, 2019, 9AM–5PM, Pendleton Hall, Bryn Athyn College, Bryn Athyn, PA.
The Swedenborg Scientific Association would like to introduce the Theistic Science Group; a collaboration of New Church scientists and theologians working on a model of scientific principles based on the axiom of spiritual-natural causation. If natural things and processes are derived from spiritual causes, how can these be described in scientific terms? Using doctrines from Swedenborg’s scientific and theological works, the Theistic Science Group asks “How does spirit descend into nature, creating as it comes?” Questions of the origin of matter, divine order, in nature, and the emergence of organic forms are being addressed by the group. Their process will be reported at this first Theistic Science Symposium.
Housing is available for a charge at the BA College.
Talks will be live-streamed and later available on YouTube.
