Great God Debate: Does Science Support Belief in a Deity?
Dr. Hugh Ross v. Dr. Victor Stenger, moderated by Dr. Philip Clayton

Dr. Hugh Ross

Hugh Ross, an evangelical Christian cosmologist, makes his case for why there is no conflict between science and religion, and claims that in fact, science leads to the inevitable conclusion that God exists and that He’s the Judeo-Christian God. Dr. Victor Stenger countered that the universe, laws of nature, and life do not need a supernatural explanation, and that, in fact, the scientific evidence points to there being no God at all. Don’t miss the lively Q & A.

Dr. Hugh Ross earned a Ph.D. in astronomy from the University of Toronto and was a research fellow in radio astronomy at Caltech in the 1970s. In addition to publishing many technical scientific papers, he is the author of numerous popular science books that defend his faith: The Fingerprint of God, The Creator and the Cosmos, Creation and Time, Beyond the Cosmos, The Genesis Question, The Origins of Life, and Creation as Science. Ross is the founding director of Reasons to Believe, an international interdenominational science-faith think tank.

Dr. Victor Stenger

Dr. Victor Stenger is emeritus professor of physics and astronomy at the University of Hawaii and adjunct professor of philosophy at the University of Colorado. He is the author of a number of popular science books also well received by professional scientists, including Has Science Found God?, The Comprehensible Cosmos, Timeless Reality, The Unconscious Quantum, Not by Design, and the New York Times bestseller, God: The Failed Hypothesis. He has debated many of the top theologians of our time.

Dr. Philip Clayton

Dr. Philip Clayton is Professor of Religion and Philosophy at Claremont Graduate University and Ingraham Professor at Claremont School of Theology. He is a philosopher and theologian specializing in the intersection of science and religion and is the author of In Quest of Freedom: The Emergence of Spirit in the Natural World, Adventures in the Spirit, Beyond the Religion Wars, and This Sacred World: What the New Integration of Science and Religion Has to Say about Ecology, Politics, and Human Spirituality. A panentheist, he defends a form of process theology that is hypothetical, dialogical and pluralistic.
