Science, the pursuit of answers to questions about the "what?" and the "how?" of our universe, can challenge our assumptions and reveal a magnificent interconnectedness between seemingly disparate things. It can inspire a tremendous sense of awe. And it can provide new glimpses of God the creator.
For many Seattle Pacific University faculty members, science is also an open door to interdisciplinary discovery.
Associate Professor of Biochemistry Benjamin McFarland, for instance, reads DNA as poetry, a "language" that helps us to imagine how God’s Word became flesh. In the study of mathematical sets, Associate Professor of Mathematics Robbin O’Leary finds a deeper understanding of an infinite God. And Professor of History Don Holsinger sees an opportunity for multicultural understanding in recent research about the Islamic roots of modern science.
Read on as these members of the SPU faculty celebrate science by connecting some unexpected dots.
