Many have claimed that modern science and Christian faith have been opposed historically, philosophically, and in what they say about the physical world. In his keynote, Prof. Barr will show the reverse to be true, that what has been opposed to Christian faith is not science itself but a reductive philosophy called scientific materialism and that modern science has revealed things that are deeply consonant with traditional Catholic theology.
