Centenary's Forum

Welcome to the Forum. We choose a topic, and invite experts, but in the end, students and citizens have the last word.

Theme: God and Religion (specific theme TBD)

This year's Forum addresses the question about the existence of God and the importance of religion. Does God exist? Can we know the answer to this question? What implications do our answers to those questions have for the role of religion and faith in our lives?
