How to Pursue Truth – Camille Carlisle, M.S.

October 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

What does a successful approach to the intersection of religion and science look like? Using questions posed by her readers and others interested in the topic, Ms. Carlisle will explore where well-meaning enthusiasts go astray. These anecdotes will serve as a counterpoint to examples from a scientific approach to seeking truth in astronomy and physics—an approach that is just as important in theology as it is in science. Her goal is to equip audience members with a fruitful way of approaching these questions.

Camille Carlisle, a Catholic science journalist and staff editor at Sky & Telescope magazine, graduated from Villanova University with a BS in Astronomy and Astrophysics and from MIT with an MS in Science Writing. Previously, Camille worked at Science News magazine in Washington, DC as the publication’s fact checker. Her articles have appeared in Sky & Telescope, Science News, Technology Review, and MIT’s webzine Scope. As Staff Editor at Sky & Telescope, Camille handles commissions and edits freelance articles about developments in our understanding of the universe. She also writes news and feature articles (usually about black holes) and blogs intermittently in her online column, “The Black Hole Files.”
