The God Debate: Science, Religion and Philosophy

27th February – 6th April 2019

Wednesdays: 18:30 – 20:30

Introduction

At the heart of our existence burns a question: ‘Why am I here?’ It is a question each of us must answer if we are to puzzle out our place in the Cosmos. But then why is the Cosmos here, or anything for that matter? Why is there something rather than nothing? Theists say that God is the best explanation of our existence, but is this just a comforting thought or can this claim be supported with evidence? Is there any proof that God exists?

This course aims to familiarize students with the main arguments for God’s existence, their relative strengths and weaknesses, and possible atheist counter-arguments to them. It will look at the contributions made by leading proponents of both theism and atheism and take into account the latest relevant scientific theories.
