Today, there is arguably no hotter topic in culture than science & religion

So much of the debate turns on The Big Questions that involve Origins: the origin of the universe, the origin of the 'fine-tuned' laws of nature, the origin of time and time's arrow, the origin of life and complex life, and the origin of brains, minds, and consciousness. From theologians and philosophers to creationists and intelligent design theorists, the central core of almost all of their arguments centers on filling these origin gaps with God. But now science is making significant headway into providing natural explanations for these ultimate questions, which leaves us with the biggest question of all: Does science make belief in God obsolete?

Organized by the Skeptics Society and running from October 3-4, 2008, this conference brings together some of the world's greatest minds to discuss some of the world's greatest questions at the California Institute of Technology.
