Philosophers and scholars have long tried to grasp the interconnectedness of beliefs and human society. One author and professor has delved deeply into what he sees as the reasons for the very existence of religion, and provocatively argues that in modern times, much of those reasons can be satisfied by science. A.C. Grayling, a leading voice in the Humanist Movement in the United Kingdom and author of The God Argument: the Case Against Religion and For Humanism, joins Welton this week on State of Belief. Professor Grayling explains the inevitable societal struggles between religion and secularism, and affirms that he’s not trying to convert anybody.
