Nehru Centre talk: Creation or Evolution: Indian Perspectives?
8 South Audley Street
London, W1K 1HF
A talk by Dr Nick Sutton of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies
Modern debates over religion and science have frequently focused on the dissonance between the understanding of creation revealed in religious texts and the ideas based on the scientific method. This debate has centred overwhelmingly on Christian and to some extent Islamic teachings but in this talk we will consider how it affects Indian religious thought and the contribution that Indian ideas have to offer.
