A talk by Dr Nick Sutton of the Oxford Centre For Hindu Studies

In recent decades religion has increasingly become involved in the debate over the extent to which scientific theories about the origins of the world and of life threaten the integrity of religious revelation. Such debates usually focus on Christianity and to a lesser extent Islam as these are religious traditions that emphasise the importance of scriptural revelation, but how do such questions affect Hindu teachings and Hindu ideas about the world? In this talk we will consider the responses that Hinduism has to offer to the challenges presented by modern scientific theory.
