Robin Collins will offer a new argument based on the fine-tuning of the cosmos. He will argue that the universe has been finely tuned to optimize the discoverability of physical laws and entities, which neither random chance, nor the multiverse can explain.

Paul Draper will construct a pro tanto case against orthodox theism based on its immodesty and on its poor fit with a variety of known facts about pleasure and pain, love and hate, autonomy and heteronomy, achievement and failure, and virtue and vice.  Collins and Draper will each respond to the other’s presentations.

Meeting Theme: The Existence of God 

This theme is interpreted broadly.  It includes not only arguments for or against the existence of God, but a variety of other issues including, for example, questions about the nature of existence as it relates to God and the epistemology of theism.
