Event Description

At our last meeting (meeting minutes to be posted soon), several members mentioned an interest in religious debates. I just saw this information on an upcoming debate, and I thought I would pass this along for anyone interested in watching. It looks like this is being put on through an Apologetics program:

“The two debaters will be at Purdue University on February 1, and you can
either watch online. If you are in the area, you can attend for free. I
can anticipate that some may be using Twitter (though I do not know what
hash tags) to comment and banter during the debate. Many of Craig's debates
are on YouTube (official site http://www.youtube.com/ReasonableFaithOrg),
and people choose to comment on his forum at ReasonableFaith.org.

Next: is the event's press release.”

=============================================

February 1-2

IS FAITH IN GOD REASONABLE?

WILLIAM LANE CRAIG VS. ALEX ROSENBERG

Hey.

LIVE DEBATE ONLINE

West Lafayette, Indiana and online

=============================================

What hath Jerusalem to do with Athens? Or what hath faith to do with reason?
Drs. William Lane Craig and Alex Rosenberg will debate this all important
and pervasive question concerning the reasonableness of faith in God. The
nature of the question in this debate is no mere academic matter. The
question of God is the most important question. One's answer to it will
impact nearly all other beliefs one holds from common notions of morality to
politics and from our interest and investigation of our world to what we
take to be our purpose(s) in life. Is "faith" foolish? By this, should it be
understood to be blind? Or is it reasonable and, if so, by what measure and
to whom is it foolishness?

For many, Mark Twain is right on the mark when he said that "Faith is
believing something you know ain't true." Yet the great thinkers of Judaism
and Christianity like Philo, Moses Maimonides, Thomas Aquinas, and John
Calvin considered faith to be an extraordinarily important virtue (moral
and/or intellectual)! Indeed, it is not only the condition by which
salvation is appropriated in these Abrahamic faith traditions (which are
taken by insiders to actually be knowledge traditions), but it is the basis
for movements from Mother Teresa's compassion and our concern for the poor
to Isaac Newton's inspiration in science in light of God's creation of the
world and man being made in God's image. Is faith in God reasonable? Ought
we to have faith in God?
