Distinguished Lecture - Dr. Alistair Donald 



There are few questions as important, and that have engaged the human mind as that of the existence of a Deity.

With the rise of Science and certain modes of philosophical reasoning, there are those who argue that God does not exist. Yet there are others, equally engaging, who pose the view that the arguments in favour of God’s existence are strong and immutable.

In this lecture, environmentalist, and scholar Dr. Alistair Donald of Heriot-Watt University, UK, examines the arguments for the existence of God.


Dr. Alistair Donald is Chaplain to Heriot-Watt University, a science and technical institution based in Edinburgh, Scotland, and home to the Edinburgh Business School.

He holds a Ph.D. in environmental science and worked in that field in different parts of the UK before being ordained to the Church of Scotland (Presbyterian) ministry. Following some years in parish ministry, he was appointed to his current chaplaincy post in 2009.

Dr. Donald has spoken widely on the relation between science, theology, and philosophy in a variety of university and church contexts throughout the UK and also in Europe and Australia.
