God and Science: A leap of faith?
Last week I had the privilege of helping the christian union in Durham University with their week of events entitled "Rescued?"
I, along with a whole load of CU guests, had opportunities to get alongside Christian students encouraging them in the gospel and training them one on one. But not just that, we also had some wonderful conversations about Jesus with non-Christians, sometimes on the back of excellent talks by Andrew Sach and Rico Tice, sometime because we were wearing bright yellow hoodies and stood out a mile, and other times because students had been faithful living and speaking for Jesus over the last few months and we got the opportunity to back that up.
Here is a talk from the Tuesday Lunchbar, the title of which is the title of this post. I thought it was excellent, any comments or questions are welcome below.
With rise to prominence of atheistic thinking (Dawkins, Hitchens, Harris et al) and the continued trust in science as the answer for most things this talk really helps uncover the inconsistency in the thinking of many and challenges people to really weigh up the evidence, not just scientific, but historic etc, and see where it leads.
