Big attendance at Faith and Cosmology Conference on Sat Nov 15

Tue 18th Nov, 2014
Over 100 people attended the Faith and Cosmology Conference at New College Edinburgh

Over 100 people attended our annual conference held jointly with the School of Divinity at New College, University of Edinburgh. 'Faith and Cosmology' was a topic which drew scientists, students, and lay people together. Speakers Fr Andrew Pinsent (Oxford) Professor Bernard Carr (London) Dr Peter Bussey (Glasgow) and Jamie Boulding (Cambridge) presented philosophical, scientific and theological papers and joined in a lively panel debate at the end. There have been exciting recent developments in cosmology and the conference tried to take account of the wider implications of the concept of the mulitverse, the anthropic principle, dark energy and the structure of the universe. The conference was filmed and the edited highlights will be available soon.
