God Through The Lenses of Science and the Bible
Since the beginning of modern science in the 17th century, both scientists and theologians have debated on the role of science in our knowledge of God. In recent years, the New Atheism of scientists, such as Richard Dawkins, had gone so far as to use science to debunk all religions, including Christianity. Is science and religion contradictory, however? Or do they offer different but complementary perspectives of the Creator? Most importantly, can there be constructive dialogue between the two, so that both science and religion may benefit from one another’s insights? Join Dr Wilkinson as he explores with us these intriguing questions!
