Book Discussion: No God, No Science? Theology, Cosmology, Biology

February 5, 2015 at 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

On Thursday, February 5, at 4 p.m., philosopher Phillip Sloan of the University of Notre Dame and Ken Myers of the Mars Hill Audio Journal will join Michael Hanby to discuss and debate his latest book: No God, No Science? Theology, Cosmology, Biology.

The discussion will be followed by a reception in McGivney Hall.

Hanby book cover

From the publisher:

Are creation and evolution mutually exclusive terms? Or is there instead a deep relationship between science, metaphysics, and theology that can help shed light into mankind’s quest for the ultimate truth? No God, No Science?: Theology, Cosmology, Biology presents a comprehensive work of philosophical theology whose overarching aim is to retrieve the Christian doctrine of creation ex nihilo from the distortions imposed upon it by positivist science and the Darwinian tradition of evolutionary biology.

Michael Hanby cogently argues that the Christian doctrine of creation is actually essential to the intelligibility of the world and that the universe itself is a fundamentally metaphysical and theological concept. Metaphysics and theology, he reasons, are not options in the realm of science, and the intractable problems of Darwinian biology are actually the result of its faulty metaphysical and theological foundations. Putting forth a new understanding of the relationship between theology and science and an original and thought-provoking critical reassessment of Darwinian biology, No God, No Science? changes the terms of the debate between Darwinism and theology and offers startling new insights into the potential for science and religion to coexist and flourish in the modern world.

The book is available for purchase from Wiley.
