The ISAS Forum – New Directions

The debates about the role of science and religion are continuing to receive great interest. Coverage in the popular media is increasing, and the opportunities to break down some of the historical and “doctrinal” divide between science and religion seem to be increasing.  In this context, we feel there is a need for the ISAS Forum to refocus and reenergize in order to better support and promote civil dialogue and increased understanding of the ways in which both scientific and spiritual knowledge can improve our lives and the collective human experience.

After several months of review and revision, we are re-launching the ISAS Forum and website. In addition to maintaining a continued commitment to high quality, thoughtful content, we are expanding our outreach to include a regular email newsletter to a broader audience and introducing a new News feature focusing on topical items of interest.

We welcome your input and your participation. Please feel free to contact me at info@swedenborgcenterconcord.org with any comments, and please engage in the conversations that are now open in our ISAS Forum Discussion pages.

Thank you – George Gantz

Science and religion are two windows that people look through, trying to understand the big universe outside, trying to understand why we are here. The two windows give different views, but they look out at the same universe. Both views are one-sided, neither is complete. Both leave out essential features of the real world. And both are worthy of respect. (Freeman Dyson – 9 May 2000)
