San Francisco’s annual Litquake literary festival returns to INFORUM for an evening with a Rabbi, an astrophysicist and Nobel laureate, a biologist and a theologian. Is the origin of the universe and existence of the soul better explained through science, religion or a little bit of both? Religion and science have long competed for the answers. A panel of experts from biology, Christianity, Judaism and physics discuss the origin of the universe and the existence of the soul.
