ZOOM One- Off

The Case Against God.

Billions have believed in the existence of God. But how well does that belief stand up to modern scrutiny? For example, is alleged personal contact with God proof of actual contact? Is God the only possible explanation for the apparent design we see in nature? Couldn't you believe in anything on faith? Is the comfort of a belief any indication of its truthfulness? Join Paul Strutynski as he outlines the modern case against God's existence. He contrasts the weak arguments for God existing, and creating us, with the strong grounds for God himself being a human creation.

ZOOM in on Learning

Online Calendar for ZOOM now in Members Area.

Zoom is a remote online meeting service which combines video conferencing, chat and various other functions.

Our Italian course, led by Teresa Hamer, has now resumed by using Zoom. The enrolled

participants are invited into the online meeting room at the appointed time. All the participants can see each other and the course leader. Teresa uses material from her computer desktop and a virtual whiteboard to continue teaching Italian.

The Pro version of Zoom is now available for our course leaders to conduct U3ASC online courses. If you’d like to use the app for your course, please connect with your Programs’ Team Contact (PTC) and they will help you to schedule a session to learn how to use Zoom. If you’re already a practised user, contact your PTC for the U3ASC log-in detail to continue your course through this time of social isolation.
