A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Creator
Thursday 10 January 2013
18:00-19:30 London time
The discussion about the existence of God in light of modern scientific discoveries has been permeating universities, literature, debates, talk shows, and pub conversations. Is the question of Godís existence a scientific question? Can science contribute to this fundamental question? In this workshop we will consider evidence from the epistemology of science, physics, cosmology, and biology (origin and diversity of life). We will evaluate the evidence, and see how well it fits with a theistic, an atheistic, and a pantheistic worldview.
