The title is “Is there intelligent life in outer space? What are the stakes?”
A good chance to check out the perennial topic, “Are We Alone?” with thoughtful people.
Talks include: Stuart Burgess, professor of engineering, University of Bristol, discussing the “bad design” argument (a.k.a. the “Panda’s Thumb” argument) and design tradeoffs.
For example, Günter Bechly: “Altogether, I suggest that the cumulative evidence against materialism and for theism is simply overwhelming. I became a Christian theist not in spite of being a scientist but because of it.”
The meeting focuses on origin of life.
