Press Conference Statement
Remarks by Dr. John M. Templeton, Jr.
Reflections on Books
John D. Barrow was Research Professor of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Cambridge whose writings on the relationship between life and the universe drew insights from mathematics, physics, and astronomy.
He challenged scientists and theologians to cross disciplinary boundaries to test what they may or may not understand about the origins of time, space, and matter, and the behavior of the universe. His work cast the intrinsic limitations of scientific inquiry into sharp relief and given theologians and philosophers inescapable questions to consider when examining the very essence of belief, the nature of the universe, and humanity’s place in it.
