Grand Canyon University welcomes JP Moreland to campus for his presentation “Neuroscience, Consciousness and the Soul,” a discussion on Christianity’s impact in history.
It is claimed that modern science, especially advances in neuroscience, has made belief in immaterial consciousness and a soul irrational and obsolete. Dr. Moreland will show why this thinking is wrong, but defining consciousness and the soul, giving arguments for why they are immaterial and not physical, and explain why neuroscience is largely irrelevant to the question of the nature of consciousness and the soul.
This event is open to the students, faculty, staff and the general public. Dr. Moreland will speak between 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 1 in Howerton Hall (CONHCP).
Dr. JP Moreland (Ph.D. Philosophy, University of Southern California) is a Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at Talbot School of Theology, Biola University in La Mirada, California. He co-founded three churches, spoken at more than 175 colleges, published more than 70 articles and served with Campus Crusade for Christian for 10 years.
