Is God a Figment of Our Imagination? – Live Debate
September 15, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
The MacRae Centre for Christian Faith and Culture of Acadia Divinity College is pleased to host a live broadcast of the debate entitled “Is God a Figment of Our Imagination?”. The event being broadcast from Convocation Hall of the University of Toronto will feature Alister McGrath (Oxford professor, scientist, theologian, Christian apologist), and Michael Shermer (author, professor, columnist, skeptic), and will be moderated by Karen Stiller, senior editor, Faith Today.
This event is being hosted by The Religion and Society Series, and is brought to you by Wycliffe College, Faith Today, Canadian Scientific & Christian Affiliation, Power to Change, RZIM, Centre for Inquiry Canada, Network of Christian Scholars, and UTSA.
Our dialogue brings together two leading thinkers who have thoughtfully wrestled with this question, each not only having embarked on a personal pilgrimage, but each bringing a lifetime of erudition, experience, and insights to bear on this theme. Alister McGrath, the atheist who would become a theist, and Michael Shermer, the theist who would become an atheist. Join us at Convocation Hall, University of Toronto or live on YouTube for what will surely be one of the most engaging two hours of thoughtful dialogue on one of history’s greatest questions. The event will be moderated by Karen Stiller, senior editor of Faith Today.
Join us as we host a live stream of the debate.
