Edinburgh International Science Festival 2012

On Saturday 14th April at 1.00pm
In the main auditorium of the newly refurbished Museum of Scotland.
Simon Barrow, theologian, commentator and co-director of the religion and society think-tank EKKLESIA joined in discussion with Prof Paul Braterman, senior fellow, Chemistry Department, Glasgow University and Keith Gilmour, Teacher of Religious, Moral and Philosophical Studies at a Scottish secondary school.
Can you be good without God – is there a scientific basis for morality?

More than 100 tickets had been sold before the day but after Paul and Simon’s interview on BBC Radio Scotland at 8.30 on the morning of the event another 50
folk decided to come along. They were entertained to a lively debate very ably chaired by Iain MacWhirter and enthusiastically joined in a Q&A session. The organisers were well pleased and made us promise to return next year with another topical debate
