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...

  • An Oxford University professor explains how maths could prove that time doesn’t exist

    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 Professor Gives Historical Proof Muslims are Right on Trinity. 4 James White + Nabeel Qureshi

    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...

Ian Goldin is Professor of Globalization at the University of Oxford and author of “The Butterfly Defect”, a book that looks at how local events cascade over national borders. WRIN.tv spoke with Professor Goldin about globalization, systemic risk, and why mitigating uncertainty in an interconnected world is essential. According to Professor Goldin, the titled of his book “The Butterfly Defect” refers to Lorenzo’s “Butterfly Effect”, which describes how something that happens on one side of the world can impact events elsewhere. In Lorenzo described how a butterfly flapping its wings in the US could create a hurricane on the other side of the world.” Professor Goldin says Butterfly Defect is the nature of risk. Globalization and technological change has created an incredibly hyper-connected global system with surprises that impact us come from outside our own domain. He says “the great challenge of risk management in the 21st century is how to mitigate… build resilience against it…(and) manage what’s more complex than ever before.” Professor Goldin believes globalization is a positive force, but he is concerned about globalization in reverse. He notes that globalization has lifted people from poverty and created the most rapid growth the world has ever known economically. Unless society can manage the emergent forces coming out of globalization “we can find that it is set back dramatically.” Forces that come from globalization include protectionism, nationalism and xenophobia. He also warns that new systems with integrated technology are too vulnerable as the world becomes more interconnected. Globalization causes instability because of the pace of change and ‘interconnectedness.’ Five years ago there were one billion people connected. Now there are five billion connected. As more people become connected, it becomes more difficult to manage and control. New risks are created by technologies that are evolving faster than our managerial capabilities. Professor Goldin wrote the Butterfly Defect as a wakeup call. “The insurance and risk management industry are stuck in silos…created in 20th century thinking.” It has to be the CEO or President who thinks of risk management as their primary duty, said Professor Goldin. “ For more World Risk and Insurance News from the 2015 European Insurance Forum (EIF) Conference in Dublin, visit the dedicated EIF 2015 Channel in the WRIN.tv On Demand Library.
