Thinking Ethics was a project launched in Geneva to foster the debate about ethics. A few friends, fed up with only reading about abuses in the media, decided to hold a forward-looking seminar on five subjects: ethics and performance, ethics and knowledge, ethics and consciousness, ethics and disobedience and ethics in real time. If moral has to do with right and wrong, then ethics is its application in society. We believe that people need to talk about the subject to determine the level of ethics they want. The book Thinking Ethics, a result of the seminar, is to start the discussion. This blog is a contribution to the conversation. :
Many scientists claim to be agnostic - they can't find the facts to base religion on. And now that CERN has found evidence of the Higgs bozon, which will shed light on the birth of the universe, a definitive split might be happening. However some scientists are trying to maintain a dialog between science and religion concerning the Big Bang. So CERN hosted a seminar between philosophers and physicists to debate the findings. The fact that the two sides are talking is interesting. More here on the BBC site on News- Science and the Environment - Big Bang: is there room for God - by Victoria Gill.
