Science & Religion: Is there a conflict?

Hear the perspective of one of the world’s preeminent scientists.
Dr. Phillips is a 1997 Nobel Prize recipient “for the development of methods to cool & trap atoms with laser light.”

Laser cooling and trapping of atoms and molecules is now used by thousands of scientists worldwide. Dr. Phillips’s work helped form the basis for the world’s best Atomic Clocks, which keep time for the nation and the world. Similar laser cooling and trapping techniques enable the application of ultra-cold gases to fields such as quantum simulation and quantum computing.

Dr. Phillips is a member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, and is a member of Fairhaven United Methodist Church. Those who know him best think that if fame had completely passed him by — he would be fundamentally the same person. He works hard, plays hard, and is completely devoted to his faith
