A film by Emily Downe for Theos Think Tank’s latest report “Science and Religion”: Moving away from the shallow end.
“Things look very different from far off
Perceptions change when you see the details
Many people look at science and religion and see conflict
But what if what looks like conflict is actually just … conversation?”
“Worlds Apart” is a short animation by Emily Downe for Theos Think Tank, that travels through a whirlwind of questions surrounding the science and religion debate. The film invites the viewer into the details of the conversations, where there is less conflict than it seems from far off.
The film was inspired by Theos Think Tank’s recent report “Science and Religion”: Moving away from the shallow end, the culmination of a three–year project done in partnership with The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion researching public and elite attitudes to science and religion in the UK today.
This film can be used as a powerful tool for classroom learning, transforming a complex concept into an accessible and personal format, stimulating conversation, and encouraging pupils to think about the questions science and religion bring about.
