Faith & Wisdom in Science

Wed, 03 May 2017 18:30:00 IST

The Institute for Discovery is delighted to present a public lecture by UK Physicist & Author Prof. Tom McLeish, Durham University

Talk Abstract

Loud voices in the media declare that science has conclusively dismissed the possibility of God through repeated waves of discovery: the underlying laws of physics, the ancient beginnings of the cosmos and the earth, the evolution of species, the chemical basis of the brain … but is this the right conclusion? What does history say? What do the most far-sighted scientists say? And what does theology actually say? Might science actually need some help to rediscover its human and cultural roots? Join UK physicist and author of Faith and Wisdom in Science (OUP) Tom McLeish to explore the issues.

The talk will be followed by a book signing by Prof. McLeish.
