Tea with Mr. Darwin

Tea with Mr. Darwin: Faith, Religion, and Science

Charles Darwin and his wife Emma were raised in free-thinking Unitarian families. Darwin studied for a life as an Anglican clergyman, and religious faith was frequently on his mind. His Anglican faith, however, was challenged by his developing ideas about natural selection and by his difficulty accepting the idea of eternal punishment. This presentation will discuss Darwin’s personal struggles with religious faith and the religious context in which his work developed. Mr. Darwin will be portrayed by Professor Kenneth Noll of UConn’s Department of Molecular and Cell Biology. Co-sponsored with the Sunday Services Committee.
