Science, Religion, & the Law Professor

The Ledger is running a series of stories looking at how people reconcile science and faith in their lives. Today, the Florida paper (with help from the St. Petersburg Times) tells the story of Steven Gey, a law professor at Florida State University who has Lou Gehrig's disease. While many of his students are conservative Christians, Gey, an American Civil Liberties attorney, promotes the scientific method, rational inquiry, and humanism. Yet his bond with his students—as well as his illness—has given them the opportunity to share their ideologies and beliefs. —Heather Wax
