Tuesday 3:00pm-4:15pm Burge Union Forum C/D
Round Table Discussion


Helen Brethauer-Gay, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University
Beliefs and values underpin behavioral choices. Religious or Spiritual belief systems, whether perceived as the same thing or differing concepts, are defining elements of value systems. Science and Religion can be diametrically opposed or can function cooperatively depending on the cosmological view of each individual. Understanding this dynamic and its effects is imperative as global warming and the need to address and reduce it increases. The intent is an open and nonjudgmental discussion.
