On October 10-12, the Gaines Center for the Humanities at the University of Kentucky is presenting a symposium, “On religion in the 21st century,” which features two speakers per night “debating” on a faith-related topic. (“Debate” is not really accurate; we each give a half-hour presentation followed by audience questions.) This year I’ll be sharing the podium with John Haught, a theologian at Georgetown University whom I’ve discussed here several times (e.g. here, here, here, and here). The topic is, of course, “Science and religion: are they compatible?”
Note that Bart Ehrman (author of some nice books debunking Jesus and the Bible) and David Hunter are debating “Are faith and history compatible?” on October 10.
Here’s the very nice poster for this symposium (click to enlarge):
I’ll also be signing books after the talk. If you’re in the area, do drop by. You might want to combine this with a visit to the Creation Museum, which isn’t far away . . . .
