13th November 2018 - "God on Trial"
We welcome back Jonathan M.S. Pearce, a philosopher, author and blogger who will be skilfully guiding us through a range of arguments against the existence of the classical idea of God. He will offer some novel arguments that challenge the concept of an omniscient, omnipotent, omnibenevolent God. Be sure for some interesting Q & A!
Jonathan is a teacher and author who has dedicated many years of his life to all manner of things philosophical and theological. He is a founder member of the Tippling Philosophers, a friendly group of disparate believers and non-believers based in Hampshire, and is also a founder author for the Skeptic Ink Network (SIN), and presently blogs at A Tippling Philosopher on Nonreligious Channel at the Patheos network.
His books include Not Seeing God: Atheism in the 21st Century, The Little Book of Unholy Questions, Did God Create the Universe from Nothing?, 13 Reasons to Doubt and The Nativity: A Critical Examination. Much of the content of this talk is expanded in his ebook The Problem with "God": Classical Theism Under the Spotlight.
