Professor John Lennox gives his argument for the existence of God. SUBSCRIBE for more speakers ► http://is.gd/OxfordUnion Facebook @ http://fb.me/theoxfordunion Twitter @ http://www.twitter.com/OxfordUnion Oxford Union Website @ http://www.oxford-union.org/ Professor John Lennox begins by declaring himself as a believer in God. He says he's not ashamed of being both a scientist and a Christian but is tired of the constant choice being put forth to chose either God or Science. The motivating force behind science is that the universe and the human mind ultimately stem from the same intelligent divine mind. He goes on to say that science can find answers to almost everything in the universe apart from why it was made; only god can reveal that piece of information to us. The proof for the e...
Marcus du Sautoy, mathematician and author of The Great Unknown, explained how mathematics could prove that time doesn't exist. He told Business Insider: "If you take the laws of physics, it is actually possible to write all of these laws to take time out of the equation. "So maybe time is just a human invention, it’s sometimes called an emergent property, that it isn’t really there at all. But I think most of us have a strong sense that there is something flowing that we call time. "But what it really is, we are not really too sure." -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI UK on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1Nz3jG3 Follow BI UK On Facebook: http://bit.ly/1VWDkiy Read more: http://uk.businessinsider.com/?IR=C -------------------------------------------------- ...

Oxford University Professor Mark Edwards gives historical information which proves the Trinity belief did not come from Jesus or his followers, rather it came from church philosophy (church tradition) centuries after. The belief of the 3-self Trinity is a 3 in 1 concept which teaches God is tri-personal (Father, Son, Spirit). It's obvious the Trinity belief was unheard of by Jesus and his disciples. It's effectively church tradition in that it's a philosophy that culminated in the late 4th century - a philosophy to try and make sense of the collection of books church fathers 200 years after Jesus began declaring to be "inspired". In order to try and make sense of what appeared to be contradictory writings they came up with the Trinity belief through an evolution of thought which eventually...

Professor Jeremy Waldron gives his argument against the use of drone warfare.

First of all the maintenance of a secret death list by government authorities under circumstances of secrecy, lack of accountability, lack of transparency and a serious failure of the rule of law. The 2nd use of drone warfare is the expansion of drone targets. So now it's not just targeting people engaged in combat but also preachers, propagandists and recruiters. The third aspect of drone warfare is that it seems to involve covert operations in territo...
