Unknowns in Heaven and Earth: Mystery, God, and the Limits of Science

What is the meaning of Truth within an ever-shifting scientific worldview? How can we find meaning in an indifferent universe? Is there something special about being human or are we just a cosmic accident? Can physics understand the origin of the universe? Where do science and religion meet, if at all? What are the limits of human knowledge? How do we learn to cope with an always limited and sometimes uncertain grasp of our universe? How do these questions relate to the natural sciences and religion? What is the role of “epistemic dependence,” and how does this relate to the field of science and religion? Presentations, discussions, and Q&A with Marcelo Gleiser and Alister McGrath, hosted by The Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion.
