Dr. John Lennox:
God Delusion Debate:
"Lennox, a popular Christian apologist and scientist, travels widely speaking on the interface between science and religion. Like Dawkins, he has dedicated his career to science, but he has arrived at very different conclusions.
'It is the very nature of science that leads me to belief in God,' he says. Lennox possesses doctorates from Oxford, Cambridge, and the University of Wales. He has written a response to the notion that Science has exposed the Bible as obscurantist in a book titled
God’s Undertaker: Has Science Buried God? ... The debate will center on Dawkins' views as expressed in his best-seller,
The God Delusion and their validity over and against the Christian faith.."
Lennox to Debate Dawkins in Alabama:
"Engaging leaders with the great ideas in the context of faith for personal &

The God Delusion. Their debate on the existence of God is sponsored by

'[People have said,]‘Where do we base our ethics? ...Who said so? What’s the authority of your ethics?…The worldview makes all the different.' - Dr. John Lennox

Dr. John Lennox:
"Dr. John Lennox has been exploring the place where religion and science meet for decades. Raised in Ireland where religion is
'in the DNA', Lennox never gave a second thought to his belief in God. It wasn't until he went off to Cambridge University that he would dive into the debate over religion, science and evolution after a student asked him if he believed in God.
Since then Lennox has gone on to become a vocal proponent of intelligent design. The Oxford University reader in mathematics is also a fellow in mathematics and the philosophy of science at the school. He travels all over the world talking about the nexus of religion and science, as well as
intelligent design ... although he doesn't like that label. Lennox says it's been hijacked by people who don't understand it."
Merging Religion & Science
Lord answered Job... 'Who is this who darkens counsel by words
without knowledge? ... Where were you when I laid the
foundations of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding."
The mighty Creator
of the universe continued speaking. He pointed to His sovereign hand
behind light, behind the ocean tides, behind the evaporating waters
that rise as clouds over the seas before watering the land, and behind
the wind currents that warm and cool the planet according to His
"Who shut in the sea with
doors, when it burst forth...
When I said, ‘This far you may come, but no farther,
And here your proud waves must stop!’...
Have you comprehended the breadth of the earth?
Tell Me, if you know all this.
Where is the way to the dwelling of light?
By what way is light diffused,
Or the east wind scattered over the earth?...
"Do you know the ordinances of the heavens?
Can you set their dominion over the earth?
Can you lift up your voice to the clouds,
That an abundance of water may cover you?" Job 38:8-34
