The Veritas Forum

Science vs. Faith Play

For almost twenty years, The Veritas Forum has brought people together—students, faculty, scholars, practitioners—to explore life's hardest questions and the relevance of Jesus Christ to all of life. Our playlists continue that vision beyond the Veritas Forum events, bringing together resources from YouTube to further discussion.

"Science vs. Faith" is a collection of video clips on the question of human meaning in a vast cosmos. Are we significant because we are unique, because we are loved by God, or for some other reason?

*Our playlists do not just represent content that we create, but also content that we curate around a certain discussion. So our playlists whenever possible include a diversity of voices from a diversity of worldviews, in the belief that this engagement leads to a clearer understanding of truth.

Why do we matter? Play

The question of why we matter has preoccupied the human mind throughout history. Cosmological accounts previously rested on the centrality of human life in the cosmos. But when Galileo gave evidence that the earth is not the cosmological center of the galaxy, and the scientific enterprise revealed the vastness of the universe, some people began to feel a kind of teleological vertigo. What gives our lives meaning? Are we meaningful because we can think? Because we are rare? Theistic accounts focus on God's divine purpose for humanity or the nature of our relationship with God. Can we somehow evoke meaning from the physical universe—or do we need God to discover our purpose?

Many of these clips come from The Test of Faith, study materials brought together by the Faraday Institute of Science and Religion at Cambridge.
