A Weblog Dedicated to the Discussion of the Christian Faith and 21st Century Life
I do not seek to understand that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand. For this also I believe, –that unless I believed, I should not understand.-- St. Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109)

Believing Is Seeing: Christian Faith and Extraterrestrial Intelligence

In this episode of "Believing Is Seeing," Allan converses with the Reverend Professor David Wilkinson, Professor and Principal of St. John's College in the Department of Theology and Religion at the University of Durham, U.K. Dr. Wilkinson has two Ph.Ds, one in astrophysics and the other in systematic theology. They discuss the possibility of extraterrestrial intelligence and what its existence might mean for the truth of Christianity.

Wilkinson's publications can be found here.

Thank you for another most interesting conversation. It brings to mind an experience back in about 1973 when we were young marrieds beginning ministry together in SE Ohio. This woman we met and were privileged to get to know was named Hellen. Hellen was very much of the opinion that aliens were very close to us, so close that she regularly went to a lonely place at night to gaze at the stars looking for spacecraft. She published articles of her discoveries. Well being young and extremely intelligent ourselves or so we thought we put Helen on the back burner as a very strange person, if not an alien herself. We've thought about Helen all these years and now that we are older and wiser we think Helen might have been closer to the truth than we ever will be.
