God in the Lab: The Science of Religious Belief

What's the difference between religious and atheistic belief systems?

What lies behind exorcism and speaking-in-tongues? How rational are atheists? Does morality depend on religion? Join Professors Chris French, Jon Lanman and Glen Carrigan, as they discuss some fascinating recent research and findings in religious and atheistic belief systems.

Curious? God in the Lab: The Science of Religious Belief will take a probing look at the role of cognition in forming beliefs. This day-conference promises to open minds, and to explore new ways of thinking, by using the four S’s, that is - science, scepticism, sarcasm and satire. Not to be missed.

Presented by Stephen Law.
