Reasonable Faith have put out a new video explaining the fine tuning argument: Scientists have come to the shocking realization that the fundamental constants and quantities of our universe have been carefully dialed to an astonishingly precise value – a value that falls within an exceedingly narrow, life-permitting range. If any one of these numbers […]
N. T. Wright recently spoke at St Andrews University on the trustworthiness of the New Testament. The message was a part of the James Gregory lectures, a series of public talks by eminent national and international speakers on a wide range of contemporary issues in science and religion.

Last month, Professor Alister McGrath delivered a lecture at Gresham College on the way science has been used to defend the intellectual credibility of Christianity. He highlights particularly how New Atheism’s unsophisticated appeal to science is being matched by a more sophisticated appeal within Christian circles.
Last year, Bradley Monton, a philosopher of science and an atheist, gave a lecture for the Reason and Science Society on the topic of Intelligent Design. In the lecture he considered the arguments for intelligent design and argued that intelligent design deserves serious consideration as a scientific theory. Monton also offered an account of the […]
