Dr. John Lennox has been exploring the place where religion and science meet for decades. Raised in Ireland where religion is “in the DNA”, Lennox never gave a second thought to his belief in God. It wasn’t until he went off to Cambridge University that he would dive into the debate over religion, science and evolution after a student asked him if he believed in God.
Since then Lennox has gone on to become a vocal proponent of intelligent design. The Oxford University reader in mathematics is also a fellow in mathematics and the philosophy of science at the school. He travels all over the world talking about the nexus of religion and science, as well as intelligent design … although he doesn’t like that label. Lennox says it’s been hijacked by people who don’t understand it.
John Lennox is in Birmingham to speak at a luncheon sponsored by Fixed Point Foundation.
