‘Has Science Buried God?’

Featuring Professor Richard Dawkins and Professor John Lennox at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History – Sold Out. Free public DVD screening of their previous debate in the Main Hall of the Oxford Town Hall at 6.00pm on Monday, 20 Oct.

In June 1860 there was a similar debate to this at The Natural History Museum. Then it was Samuel Wilberforce the Bishop of Oxford and the Biologist Thomas Huxley that clashed over Darwin’s Origin of Species. More than 100 years on and the debate is still as fierce as ever.

A testament to that fact is that the main event is long since sold out but fans of the controversy need not be disappointed because there will be a screening of the pair's last debate in Birmingham, Alabama from the autumn of 2007.  This will be free to the public in the Main Hall of the Oxford Town Hall at 6.00pm on Monday, 20 October 2008.

BBC Oxford’s Tim Bearder caught up with Professor John Lennox ahead of the event to see what he felt about these debates.

And if you want to hear more about John’s views on Science and Religion you can listen to his whole half hour discussion with Tim in our Devil’s Advocate series.
