PROF KEITH WARD – on “The God Virus”

Posted by Stephen Law on October 27, 2010

Centre for Inquiry UK and South Place Ethical Society present

Prof. KEITH WARD

THE GOD VIRUS?

Keith Ward is a philosopher and theologian, Regius Professor of Divinity (Emeritus), Oxford, and the author of The God Conclusion. Now at Heythrop College.

Ward addresses Richard Dawkins’s suggestion, developed by Ray in The God Virus, that religion functions in a similar way to a virus. Ray spoke on 23rd October. Here, Ward offers a vigorous response! Plenty of opportunity for discussion. Ward is one of the world’s leading religious thinkers. He’s also a great guy!

This is a free-standing talk. No familiarity with Dawkin’s or Ray’s work is assumed.
