Questions of truth

This event will offer a rigorous response to critics of the idea that faith and science can usefully cohabit in modern society

It is widely thought that religion is archaic and irrelevant with has no place in our scientific age, and that faith is superstitious nonsense that should have been left behind long ago. In this event John Polkinghorne and Nicholas Beale will offer a rigorous, authoritative and sophisticated response to critics of the idea that faith and science can usefully cohabit in modern society. John Polkinghorne is a major figure in today’s debates on science and religion and together he and Nicholas Beale have been providing rational and reasoned responses to key questions arising from this discourse over the web for the last decade. From their different backgrounds and perspectives, they will talk about aspects of contemporary faith that are of deep concern to those who are serious about science and serious about faith.
