A level Theology students had the opportunity to travel to a lecture given by three eminent speakers on religion yesterday at an AIM Conference in Camden:
Professor Richard Dawkins, atheist philosopher, evolutionary biologist and author, Emeritus Fellow of New College, Oxford.
Richard Swinburne, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at the University of Oxford. Professor Swinburne is a renowned Christian philosopher and author of several acclaimed books on the case for theism. Professor Dawkins addressed Professor Swinburne's arguments specifically in his book The God Delusion, and the two have debated several times since.
Dr James Carleton Paget, Senior Lecturer in New Testament Studies in the Faculty of Divinity of the University of Cambridge, who will speak on St Mark's Gospel.
The students have been studying the 'Does He exist debate' in class, so this was a super insight into the discussion by some of the best philosophers on this subject in the world.
