SCIENCE AND RELIGION: Simon Singh, Mary Warnock, Jack Cohen, Stephen Law
Saturday 25th April 2009
A day exploring the relationship between science and religion, with some very eminent and well-known speakers (plus myself).
The day will address, among other issues, such questions as: Are religion and science non-overlapping magesteria? Can science support, or undermine, religious beliefs? If so, how? If not, why not?
This promises to be a fascinating series of talks, whatever your views on religion.
Simon Singh will talk about Georges Lamaitre (scientist and priest) and the Big Bang, Baroness Mary Warnock about “religion as humanism” Jack Cohen about evolution and belly buttons, and Stephen Law about empirical evidence against the God hypothesis.
The cost is £10 (£5 students and national Humanist orgs). BOOK NOW. Send a cheque payable to “Centre for Inquiry London” to: Executive Director Suresh Lalvani, Centre for Inquiry London, at the Conway Hall address (include names of all those coming).
