The Death of God
Science, Faith and Limitations
In 1882, Friedrich Nietzsche wrote: “God is dead, and we have killed him.” A quote to express the idea that the (Christian) God of religion had been replaced by a new God, namely science. Fast forward to today, we find ourselves in a time in which the western societies of the 21st century find more and more that science also is not capable of explaining everything in life. (Such as ethics, morals, purpose and even gut-feelings). Perhaps science as “God” is dead too.
This does not mean that this is the end of science. It does, however, sharpen the lines of where science has its relevance and where it should be assisted. Almost ironically, God resurrects here. We think it is up to us to investigate a new friendship between science and faith, a friendship where both are equals.
The questions this new approach raises will be brought to the table at this Veritas Forum. We have invited two remarkable speakers to discuss this topic with each other and with you! So make sure to be there on June 15!
