Faith, Proof and Evidence: What's right to think?
Nov 24, 2015
Gresham College
An examination of the dogma and methodology that hinders and helps debate in science and religion:

This lecture will consider the place of evidence in science and religion, looking particularly at some of the debates about the rationality of faith associated with "New Atheist" writings, such as Richard Dawkins' The God Delusion (2006). The lecture will look at some classic arguments for the existence of God - such as Thomas Aquinas' cosmological argument, and C. S. Lewis's argument from desire - and consider how these might fit into the overall theme of the "rationality of faith".
The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website:
