Event to discuss conflicts between religion and science

The apparent conflicts between religion and science will be discussed at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Lifetree Cafe, 3101 Campus Drive.

The program, "Science and Religion: Can They Coexist?," features an exclusive filmed interview with the Vatican Observatory's Brother Guy Consolmagno.

Consolmagno, who holds a doctorate in planetary science, is curator of the Vatican meteorite collection in Castel Gandolfo and researches the origin and evolution of small bodies in the solar system.

"Science and religion often appear to be at odds," said Lifetree representative Craig Cable, who notes that the two camps may be closer than they appear. "We'll talk about where the two ideologies clash as well as complement each other."

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages will be available.

Lifetree Cafe is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting.

Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Cable at (970) 292-4838 or
