The Great Flood and Climate Change
Did the great flood described in the Bible and Qur’an actually happen? Will the planet experience a great flood in the future? The story of Noah and the deluge plays a significant role in the three Abrahamic faith traditions. It also strikes a chord among those interested in climatology as the chronicle of a real event or at least a cautionary tale about what might happen when humans neglect their duty as stewards of the planet. This dramatic narrative will be discussed and debated by an interfaith panel of local clergy-members and a trio of renowned climate scientists on Sunday, Nov. 3 from 3:30 to 6 p.m. in “A Flood of Ideas: A Symposium on Noah, the Great Flood, and Climate Change,” at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield. The event is open to the community free of charge. Sunday, Nov. 3, 3:30-6 p.m., Sacred Heart University, West Campus, East Building Auditorium, 3135 Easton Tpke., Fairfield. | Info/registration: https://bit.ly/2VmrBhl
