Do the Laws of Physics Make God Unnecessary?Oxford University professor will discuss God and Stephen Hawking Aug. 19th
August 2, 2011
Seattle – In his best-selling book The Grand Design (2010), renowned physicist Stephen Hawking advanced the startling claim that the laws of physics make God unnecessary for the creation of the universe.
Friday, August 19th Oxford University Mathematics Professor John Lennox will respond based on his book God and Stephen Hawking: Whose Design Is It Anyway?
Regarded by some as a new C.S. Lewis, Prof. Lennox is a lively speaker and a winsome writer. Author of the best-selling God’s Undertaker: Has Science Buried God?, Lennox has debated leading atheists Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens and has lectured at universities around the world.
The free public lecture begins at 7:30pm at University Presbyterian Church (www.upc.org) at 4540 15th Avenue NE, Seattle and will be followed by a Q&A session and book signing with Dr. Lennox.
