No religious scripture contains as many accounts of gross paranormal or miraculous phenomena than the four testaments of the New Testament. Changing water into wine, feeding the multitude , healings, resurrections, walking on water, and the transfiguration where great blinding light shone from Jesus. And there are many more. These miracles had great impact on a developing and expanding religion. Controlling and influencing the laws of nature was interpreted as an act of divinity, a divine intervention.
On 24th September 2016, in association with the Scientific & Medical Network, the Albert Schweitzer Institute (UK) will be hosting a conference at Cambridge University. This is the first of a series of annual conferences which will be held at different universities each year to raise awareness of Dr Schweitzer’s life and thought.
