NCCL: Why is there something rather than nothing?
The cosmological argument for the existence of God. If you were to ask a scientist how the universe began, you might be told that it came into existence in a 'Big Bang’ nearly 14 billion years ago. But if you were to ask a scientist why the universe began, you might be told that there is no reason at all. Does this make any sense? And if it doesn’t, does that suggest that God exists, or that we have simply reached the limit of our common understanding of things?

In this third session exploring ‘natural theology’, we explore an attempt to prove the existence of God from the existence of the universe itself. If there is something, and not nothing, then does there have to be a reason why?

Led by Dr Anthony Speca.

Cost £10 for single session, or £15 if both philosophical argument sessions booked together (see also 28 April 2018)
