Dear Science and Religion: We Need to Talk

Posted on: April 23, 2019

Biology professor Jason Wiles is part of The Clergy Letter Project, a national organization supporting an interfaith dialogue on science and religion. In recent weeks, he has talked to various outlets, including The Humanist and SparkDialog, about the importance of teaching and learning biological evolution. “In matters where various traditions are in dialogue, humanist voices must be represented,” says Wiles, also a chaplain and celebrant of The Humanist Society. Since its inception in 2004, The Clergy Letter Project has grown to include more than a thousand scientists and approximately 16,300 clergy from different faiths.
