New Europe, New Atheism DebateJune 26, 2008
Some of you in the UK might be interested in a debate that will take place during the Edinburgh International Festival at 11am on Saturday the 9th of August.
The debate, to be held at the Usher Hall, will be between Dr John Lennox (Fellow in Mathematics and Philosophy and Chaplain at Green College Oxford) and Christopher Hitchens (journalist, author and one of the ‘New Atheists’). The debate will be moderated by James Naughtie (presenter of BBC Radio 4′s Today programme).
Would the new Europe be better off jettisoning its religious past and welcoming the new atheism? A discussion between a scientist who thinks God is great and a cultural commentator who doesn’t. In association with The Trinity Forum and the Fixed Point Foundation.
There is seating for 1,800 and it is expected to sell out.
