Southampton - God, Science and Evidence

Science has brought us medicine, technology, and unparalleled insights into the nature of our universe. Given this superb track record, should its powerful methods for gathering and organising evidence also be used when thinking about ultimate questions, including perhaps even the existence of God? Or is science, notwithstanding its power, poorly equipped to answer questions of meaning, value and purpose? And if so, could there be other rational ways to weigh relevant evidence?

Ard Louis is Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Oxford. He leads an interdisciplinary research group studying complex problems on the border between chemistry, physics and biology.
