The Pat Flynn Show

May 22, 2019

Can Science and Religion Co-Exist?

Pat Flynn is joined by Dr. Stacy Trasancos, author of Particles of Faith, to discuss the deep and important harmony between the religious and scientific worldview, and why she believes, more than anything, that science is truly studying the handiwork of God. Dr. Trasancos shares her conversion story while highlighting those parts of her academic and scientific career that brought her back to faith.
