BOSTON, October 17, 2012 – The American Islamic Congress (AIC) and Project Nur will present the second panel event in their Science and Islam series at Boston University on October 24. Panelists will discuss the intersections and divergences of Muslim tradition with the theory of evolution.

The Science and Islam series is intended to create public awareness and discussion about the role of Muslims in science today and the contributions of Muslims to science throughout history. It also explores the relationship between personal belief on scientific thought. As impressive numbers of Muslims enter the STEM fields, and as the Muslim population around the world rapidly expands, it increasingly is important to understand the diverse ways in which scientific theories and questions are approached by Muslims.
