History at Emory University

In 2013, The Veritas Forum at Emory welcomed Jeff Schloss and Frans de Waal to discuss questions of morality and altruism in "Morals Without God?".

Since its beginning, science has demonstrated its uncapped ability to uncover and explain our universe... or has it? In 2012, The Veritas Forum at Emory invited MIT professor Ian Hutchinson to discuss science and faith in "The Scientism Delusion?".

In 2008, The Veritas Forum at Emory welcomed New Testament scholar N.T. Wright to explain common misunderstandings about heaven, souls, and resurrection with historical and Biblical insights. "Why does Jesus' Resurrection matter?" How does the resurrection relate to everyday life ... and the afterlife?
