Morning is a good time to drink a little coffee.
Last Saturday about 25 of us gathered at WTU to hear
a fine presentation on Science and Religion by
Fr. Patrick Heelan of Georgetown University.
Heelan had studied with Schrodinger and worked
with Heisenberg. He is a physicist/philosopher. His talk
was quite interesting. What sticks with me is the limitations
on our knowing. This is especially true in physics. Heelan used
his autobiographical accounts of his famous colleagues/mentors to
enter the questions raised by modern physics.
A large group stayed for lunch and continued the discussion.
It was a most stimulating morning.
