God new evidence

GOD: new evidence


The 'Great Debate' - the background ('Bad Faith' #12)

What's in the series?      Previous: Newton, Boyle and the Royal Society      Next: The 'Great Debate' - Huxley and Wilberforce

Everyone knows that the 'Great Debate' that happened in Oxford on 30th June 1860, between Darwin’s Bulldog, Thomas Henry Huxley, and the Bishop of Oxford, Samuel Wilberforce, was a turning point in the conflict between science and faith, and a great victory for the forces of science and enlightenment over the dark and backwards forces of religion…. But what 'everyone knows' is wrong. What really happened?

With contributions by Dr Allan Chapman, (Oxford University), author of 'Slaying the Dragons: destroying myths in the history of science and faith' and 'Stargazers: Copernicus, Galileo, the Telescope and the Church,' and by Dr Ian Hesketh, author of 'Of Apes and Ancestors: Evolution, Christianity, and the Oxford debate.'

‘A significant and growing number of scientists, historians of science and philosophers of science see more scientific evidence now for a personal creator and designer than was available fifty years ago.’ - M J Wilkins and J P Moreland
