Three Physicists in search of an Author?

2015-04-23 18.22.31

Three Durham physics professors in fact, from left to right Tom McLeish (soft matter), Charles Clarke (atomic and molecular), and Stewart Clark (computational condensed matter). They are in friendly conversation at Ustinov College about matters (sorry…) of faith and science, and coming at it broadly from the point of view of a practising Christian, an agnostic and an atheist. It made for a great evening, with plenty of themes I hope to follow up, and was in itself a strong observed fact to go in the lab notebook of evidence that tends to show that a narrative of conflict is both less necessary and less fun than the alternative.
