Does God Exist?
This head-to-head debate will reflect on an age-old question which has been considered by
philosophers and theologians for millennia: does God exist? Our two speakers will discuss the
philosophical arguments for and against the existence of God, from moral and logical arguments
to those posed by observed phenomena of the universe.
