SummarySimon Conway-Morris discusses science, the Bible and whether evolution can be purposeful.
Simon Conway Morris holds a Chair in Evolutionary Palaeobiology at the University of Cambridge. His research interests include the study of Burgess Shale-type faunas, the first appearance of skeletons, and the Cambrian explosion. He is published in Nature and Cell, among other peer-reviewed journals, and is the author of two books, The Crucible of Creation and Life's Solution: Inevitable Humans in a Lonely Universe. His interests extend to the public understanding of science and, as a convinced Christian believer, in the place of faith in an age of science.
