Blackshaw Environmental Action Team Public Meeting

March 17, 2015

There will be two speakers at the Blackshaw Environmental Action Team public meeting during Science Week:

Roger Munday will talk about Science and religious belief – conflict or common ground?

  • How can a rational, scientifically-literate person today sincerely believe in a supernatural, interactive God?
  • Surely science will ultimately be able to explain everything.
  • Are there not now more grounds than ever for doubting the existence of God?
  • But if so, why are some significant scientists also devout Christian believers?
  • Roger is the lay pastor/preacher at Blackshaw Head and a former architect with a particular interest in the conjunction of the physical and the spiritual in church architecture.

From Durham University, Ben Campbell, who will be speaking on ‘Climate Change, Energy and Culture: global lessons for local practice’.

Ben is an anthropologist with a strong interest in mountain and upland societies around the world. He has worked in the Himalayas on subsistence agro-pastoralism, and indigenous environmental knowledge. He is a lecturer at Durham University, and has made two films on ‘Shamanic Pilgrimage’ and ‘The Way of the Road’ in northern Nepal. He brought two friends from Nepal to Cornholme in 1998, where they made terraces which he continues to cultivate as a WWOOF farm.
