How you live is largely determined by how you physically and spiritually make sense of the world around you. But how do you fit all the pieces together in this post-modern, relativistic society amidst all the different voices on the contradicting or complementing nature of science and religion?

To explore these questions, SciSoc and EUScience jointly invite you to discuss why you choose to reject or embrace Christianity with a panel fellow science students. Come along and hear their experiences, ask them questions and share your own ideas!
