Lincoln Forum on Science and Religion
Nebraska Citizens for Science
[formerly the Center for the Advancement of Rational Solutions (CARS)]
The Center for the Advancement of Rational Solutions (CARS) is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to engage experts and the public in a spirited dialogue. The Lincoln Forum on Science and Religion brings together an interdisciplinary group, of representatives of various religions and sciences, with the aim of resolving policy conflicts. Among these are origin theories in the public education curricula, public policy on homosexuality, and the boundaries, applications, and implications of the biosciences. The leadership has commitment, a vision for growth, and considerable experience in nonprofit management, organizing forums, and media events. CARS organizes public forums in both Lincoln and Omaha on major issues in its sphere of interest. Ultimately, CARS aims at a reconciliation of religions with science and with each other through an exploration of common ground. It seeks to do so through a variety of engagement strategies, with science presented as the common source of reliable knowledge of the natural world as we find it across religious boundaries.
