<strong>No God, But God.</strong> This programme looks at religions in the Abrahamic tradition. Judaism, Christianity and Islam are examined in order to understand the ideas about God they share and the issues that divide them. We focus on the relations between men and God and the numerous issues that arise from these considerations. These may include: how does God want us to live? Does God have a plan for the world and humanity? What about free will? If God created humanity why does God allow humanity to suffer?
<strong>The God of the Gaps. </strong>We examine how belief in God had been challenging the modern world by secular ideas, in particular science - how people of all religious beliefs have over the centuries accommodated their faith with the pursuit of knowledge. We explore how advances in astronomy, physics and biology challenged religious beliefs,particularly in the Christian West, and the historic and current debates over Darwin's theory of evolution. Finally, we look at those scientific disciplines where a convergence between faith and science seems possible.
