God. God! God? God:)
God will be the topic of this debacle. It is not a great debacle nor a tremendous debacle, but the Almighty Debacle. Is there an Ultimate Reality behind the ideas, images, myths and passion of religion? Can a plausible understanding of God be articulated in light of science? Is the world better off if humanity got over God or got right with God? These questions and more will be explored during the God Debacle!
The God Debacle will be featuring two friends of the Homebrewed Podcast, LeRon Shults and Philip Clayton. There was a time when these two philosophers of science would have been allies in the academic
pursuit of the divine. Today LeRon is no longer a Christian or even a theist and recently published a book exploring how God is both born and borne by humanity, Theology After the Birth of God. Philip recently published his book The Predicament of Belief and Confronting the Predicament of Belief in which he argues for the reality of God in light of contemporary science.
This event is sure to be an energetic evening of nerdy delight. There are limited tickets for those who wish to attend live. On top of being there in the flesh you will get to join in a happy hour prior to the show, chat it up and share a beverage or two with the crew.
The proceeds of this event will go to produce a Science and Religion series to be shared far and wide. As always our goal at HBC isn’t to think for you, but think with you. Clearly a greater understanding of science is needed within religious communities and we hope to contribute to a more robust dialogue and engagement.
