"Science and the God Delusion: A conversation with Richard Dawkins"

Eden Court Theatre, Inverness, Wednesday 2 April 2008.

Introduction by Professor Robert Cormack, principal, UHI Millennium Institute.

Professor Richard Dawkins FRS was interviewed on stage by Inverness resident Paula Kirby. Paula, who used to be a Christian and is now an atheist, talked to Richard Dawkins informally about the ideas that have informed his life and work. This was followed by an extended opportunity for the audience to put their own questions and challenges to this world-renowned and controversial figure.


The lecture is the first in a three part series focussing on science and theology. The next two lectures will also take place at Eden Court Theatre:

10 June - Rev. Professor Andrew McGowan, principal of Highland Theological College, will present his inaugural lecture discussing the issues surrounding theology and its role in the university.

27 October - Dr John Lennox, Reader in Mathematics at the University of Oxford, will present a response to Professor Dawkins' lecture and questions whether science has disproved the existence of God.
