Sir Roger Penrose & William Lane Craig: The Universe: How did it get here & why are we part of it?

Celebrated mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose talks to renowned Christian philosopher William Lane Craig about God and the Universe. They discuss Penrose’s ‘3 realms’ view of reality and his Conformal Cyclical Cosmology. Could the fundamental nature of reality, the Big Bang and the fine tuning of the Universe point towards a creator God?

The Big Conversation is a unique video series from Unbelievable? featuring world-class thinkers across the Christian and atheist community. Exploring science, faith, philosophy and what it means to be human.

A walk down memory lane:

Sean Carroll did debate him (2014) as did Sam Harris (2011).

Richard Dawkins backed out. So did Polly Toynbee. Larry Krauss debated him but professed himself “shocked.” (All 2011.)

Penrose surely offers a more thoughtful debate than Dawkins and Krauss anyway. Too bad we had to wait till 2019 to see it.
