Science & Religion
The Belfast Book Festival is pleased to present an evening in conversation with John Lennox.
The internationally renowned speaker and academic will confront the notion that science has made a belief in God unnecessary, perhaps even obsolete. Do Science and God mix, or are they fundamentally incompatible?
A cultured and resilient, consummate debater, John Lennox has shared the stage with many of the world’s most adamant atheists on the subject of the existence of God, and given such heavyweights as Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens patent pause for thought despite their own seemingly unshakable and contrarian views.
In conversation with Stephen Shaw QC, John Lennox will lay out his case that science, far from proving the non existence of God, can serve to strengthen the argument that God is not only real, but that our own existence is the calculated product of his intelligent and deliberate design.
John Lennox is an internationally renowned speaker on the interface between science, philosophy and religion. He is Professor of Mathematics (emeritus) at Oxford University, and Fellow of Mathematics and the Philosophy of Science at Green Templeton College, Oxford.
There will be opportunities for audience participation and questions throughout the evening.
