Dawkins, Hawking and the Simpsons: Science and religion in the media


The dialogue of science and religion is often mediated through the pronouncements of celebrity scientists, science fiction and comedy. David Wilkinson takes us on a tour of this world, seeing both the opportunities and challenges for Christian faith – from the Big Bang to the end of the Universe via Homer Sapians.

David Wilkinson is the Wesley research lecturer in Theology and Science at the University of Durham. He is a fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society and his second PhD explores how Christian faith relates to the end of the universe.
