Bellingham Lectures in Philosophy and Religion




BLPR_logoblprThis coming spring, Western Washington University will be hosting the second annual Bellingham Lectures in Philosophy and Religion with guest speakers Dr. Jeffrey Schloss (The Evolution of Religion Project) and Dr. Michael Murray (editor of Reason for the Hope Within). The project was kicked off in 2011 by Dr. Alvin Plantinga who gave lectures titled, God and Evolution: Where the Conflict Really Lies, and Does Science Show that Miracles Can’t Happen? Philosophy News interviewed Dr. Plantinga during that event.

The 2012 program will feature two lectures on the Bellingham campus:

February 21, 7pm: “Evolutionary Accounts of Belief in God” – Does biology explain away God?

February 23, 7pm: “Evolution and the Problem of Evil” – Is evolutionary suffering incompatible with a good God?

The lectures will take place at the Pacific Arts Center (PAC) on the campus of Western Washington University and will be streamed live at 7pm PST both evenings through the BLPR website. Philosophy News will be attending the event and we hope to get some time with Drs. Schloss and Murray. Check back after the event for more information.
