(Doors open at 7pm)
Join us for a special evening with acclaimed thinker and writer Dr. William Dembski as he reflects on his life and work, answers your questions, and previews his fascinating forthcoming book Being as Communion: A Metaphysics of Information. The capstone of a trilogy that includes The Design Inference and No Free Lunch, Being as Communion is already being hailed as “brilliant” and “a tour de force.” The book tackles the claim that mind is a myth and that everything about us -- our thoughts, our morals, and our decisions -- are the products of unguided material processes. Dembski proposes that the opposite may be true: In light of modern information theory, it is matter, not mind that may be the “myth.” Come and interact with Dr. Dembski as he discusses:
- how information theory helps illuminate what it means to have free will.
- how information theory can help us understand the existence of the soul.
- how arch-atheist biologist Richard Dawkins inspired his work on intelligent design.
- and a surprising fact about his past most people don’t know.
