This week a Vatican delegation, leaded by Card. Giovanni Lajolo, Governor of
Vatican City, has visited CERN (Geneva), where LHC Project is going to have a
new start kick (link SRM).
This visit has been a real opportunity for an
"official meeting" between science and faith.
Cardinal Lajolo has had the
opportunity to have a fast course about particles phisics, given by prof. Edward
Witten (Princeton University), a phisicist in the forefront of the unification
of Albert Eistein genaral relativity theory, and Quantum Phisics
After, Lajolo has given a speech about a possible armony between
science and faith, explaining that "The Church never fears the truth of science,
because we are convinced that all truth comes from God," and declaring himself
convinced that science will can "correct some of our opinions" about sacred
scriptures and religion, and "will help our faith to purify itself", while faith
in the same breath will be able to broaden the horizons of man, who cannot just
enclose himself in the horizons of science."
