he first of two shows featuring atheist US physicist Victor Stenger, author of NY Times bestseller “God: The failed Hypothesis”.

Stenger claims that Christian belief has been a block to science historically and that science has shown the Universe to look “Exactly as it would if there were no God”.

Steve Fuller is Professor of Sociology at Warwick University. He takes issue with the current wave of scientific atheism and in his new book “Science” (The Art of Living Series, Acumen) says that science can’t be done without the concept of God at its heart.
