Schweitzer Lecture is Tonight


Dr. George Schweitzer will talk about the relationship between science and religion Thursday, Nov. 4, at Williams Baptist College. Schweitzer will talk about "The Power of Presuppositions" when he presents this year’s Mondy-Carroll Lecture at Williams.

A distinguished professor at the University of Tennessee, Schweitzer holds doctorates in the fields of chemistry, philosophy of religion and history of science. He maintains that there is no conflict between science and religion, but rather a conflict between differing world views, which he will explain further in his lecture.

The Mondy-Carroll Lectureship, which deals with the natural sciences, was endowed by the late Dr. Nell Mondy of Ithaca, N.Y. Mondy was a Pocahontas, Ark., native who named the lectureship in honor of several late relatives from the Pocahontas and Walnut Ridge area.

Schweitzer’s lecture will begin at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday. It will be held in room 101 of the Sloan Center. There is no charge, and the public is encouraged to attend.
