Video Conversations

Is religion an evolutionary adaptation that has helped the human species to thrive? Or is there a basis to belief in God that goes beyond biological explanations? In a post-Christian age what will replace the repository of wisdom that religion has offered?

Filmed in front of a live audience in London, Bret Weinstein and Alister McGrath address the relationship between religion, evolution, morality and culture. These two videos include the main conversation and subsequent audience Q&A.  


 

Bret Weinstein is an evolutionary biologist and one of the leading voices in the ‘Intellectual Dark Web’. As a non-believer he says religion is a product of evolution, but it has been good for humanity. As such it is ‘metaphorically true but literally false’.


Alister McGrath is Andreas Idreos Professor of Science and Religion at Oxford University. A leading British theologian with a background in biochemistry, he believes Christianity is not merely a ‘useful fiction’ but grounded in evidence and the ultimate truth of God.
