1A EMPLEON CONVERSAION
 
he John empleton Foundation serves as a philanthropic catalyst or researchon what scientists and philosophers call the Big Questions. We support wor at the world’s top universities in such elds as theoretical physics, cosmology,evolutionary biology, cognitive science, and social science relating to love, orgiveness,creativity, purpose, and the nature and origin o religious belie. We encourage inormed,open-minded dialogue between scientists and theologians as they apply themselves tothe most proound issues in their particular disciplines. And, in a more practical vein, wesee to stimulate new thining about wealth creation in the developing world, charactereducation in schools and universities, and programs or cultivating the talents o the gited. Tis boolet neatly embodies our approach to the Big Questions: the contributors arescholars and thiners o the rst ran, they address a perennial and much-disputed subject,and they bring to bear—in civil, elegant prose—a range o dierent perspectives. By assembling this “conversation” and inviting the public to join in, we intend to promote adialogue that transcends amiliar rhetoric and stoc answers. We aim to turn discourseon the Big Questions in a more thoughtul, considered direction. It is our hope that thisboolet will be a lasting resource or students, teachers, parents, scientists, clergy, andanyone else engaged with the great issues o human nature and purpose. Te essays collected here were coordinated and edited by Michael Shermer, who alsocontributed a piece o his own. Te John empleton Foundation grateully acnowledgesDr. Shermer’s sillul assistance and wise counsel. wo previous “conversations” on Big Questions at the core o the Foundation’s mandatemay also be o interest to readers. Tey can be ound online at the ollowing addresses:
