Is anything worth believing in?

That's the question Christian thinker and mathematician John Lennox will address at  the upcoming  Veritas Forum at the University of Pennsylvania. To answer it Lennox will draw from his experiences with atheism and theism in Eastern Europe. He holds a post as Professor of Mathematics in the University of Oxford and  Fellow in Mathematics and the Philosophy of Science. His most recent book, God's Undertaker - Has Science Buried God, addresses the interface between science, philosophy, and theology.

Tenth elder and Penn professor David Skeel will moderate the evening and there's a promise of light refreshments at the end. The event will be held Wednesday February 22, in Irvine Auditorium on the Penn Campus (3401 Spruce Street).
